Q. What Is Royalty Free Music?
A. Instead of paying each time you use a piece of music, the Royalty Free Agreement grants you what might be called a “lifetime cover” (a 99 year term). This form of licensing lets you use the music worldwide as many times as you like for a one time charge. Your licensed uses include audio, video, industrial films and slide presentations as well as multimedia, television, radio and satellite broadcast.

Q. Does “Copyright Free” mean the same as Royalty Free?
A. No, the term “Copyright free” is a misnomer. Even if a piece of music is in the public domain, the sound recording is probably under copyright. Other so called “Liscence Free” approaches can be misleading as well. While they avoid the “work” of signing a license agreement, they also avoid spelling out the rights you think you are buying.

Q. What rights am I “buying out” when I purchase Royalty Free Music?
A. Basically there are 3 rights you need for AV/Video: Mechanical, Synchronization and Public Performance. The mechanical right lets you re-record the music from a purchased CD. The synchronization right lets you put the music into time relationship with a picture. Finally, you need the Public Performance Right. Your Royalty Free Agreement provides you with all 3 important rights.
