End-User License Agreement

PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. BY PURCHASING AND DOWNLOADING ANY OF THE CONTENT (“Music” or “Sounds” or “Track” or “Content”) ON THIS SITE, YOU (“Licensee”) HEREBY AGREE TO AND ARE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS END USER AGREEMENT.

Survey

You can buy high-quality original music for your media project for a fraction of the price you would usually pay. At musiclicensingdeal.com you can license music or sounds for your work easily.

Any performance music our sounds on free television, cable television, the internet, or other performance venues under the jurisdiction of ASCAP or BMI or any similar performance rights agency may incur additional fees independent of this Agreement.

Commonly, these compensations are paid by the broadcasting network and not you.

In my case, I’m an SACEM affiliate. The only thing you have to do is to mention my name as a composer and the name of the song. If the support you’re hosting your work on pays royalties, they will pay me. Otherwise, they won’t. In both cases, you have nothing to pay extra.

If your project is broadcast on television, cable or released to theaters, you will need to provide a cue sheet for your project when your project is finished. You can learn more about cue sheets by visiting www.bmi.com, and you can file cue sheets electronically here. If you use a track in an audio-only product that you intend to distribute commercially (e.g. an audio book or audio CD) that is neither synchronized with other media or voice-over, you must also obtain a written approval from the composer, as well as a master use license from the publisher or composer.
