License FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

 

Q) Do I need a license to make videos for friend or others ?

I sometimes make videos for friends or others and usually don’t even charge them.
The videos may be just for fun or private use.
Do I (or my friends) need a license for any music or sound tracks ?

A) The “End user” MUST be licensed for all music and sound tracks used.

So you should consider that if you are using the music and sound tracks to create productions for any other party, paid or otherwise, you should have a license. Without owning a license yourself, you should not be in possession of any licensed music or tracks from MusicForMarketing.com. Additionally, without a license you are not permitted to show any production you created to anyone at anytime, either publically or privately. Nor are you permitted to retain copies of either the music or sound tracks, or any production that used or contains any content from such music or sound tracks. In any case however, the “End user” (your friends or others) absolutely MUST be licensed for all music and sound tracks that are used in any such production, period !

Q) As a “Real Estate Agent” I/we create videos “in-house” for various clients

to showcase their properties and advertise them on our web site and various other places on the internet, and possibly local theaters and other advertising opportunities.
Does our client need to be licensed for any music or sound tracks we use in our “in-house” created videos ?

A) There is a clear distinction to be made here, one that you will like.

So long as you do not release the video to your client, they do NOT need to be licensed.
As a “Real Estate Agent” creating videos to showcase your client’s properties, you or your company is the “End user”. Provided (that is) such video productions are NOT released to your client for their own use.
In this case, you or your company only requires ONE license for each music or sound track from MusicForMarketing.com, to permit you to create such video productions to showcase an unlimited number of properties.
The distinction here, is because in this capacity, your productions are clearly representing YOUR service of selling such properties. Therefore only a single license is required to be held by you or your company.
In the case that your client is provided with such video production, then YES they would be required to have their own license for each and every music or sound track use in the production.

Q) As an “Auction House” I/we create videos “in-house” for various clients

to showcase the items we are auctioning for them and advertise them on our web site and various other places on the internet, and possibly local theaters and other advertising opportunities.
Does our client need to be licensed for any music or sound tracks we use in our “in-house” created videos ?

A) Please see the question and answer above for “Real Estate Agents”.

Exactly the same rules apply for businesses like auction houses, where such video productions are NOT released to your client(s), your client is NOT the “End user” and will not require to be licensed.

Q) Can I use music and sound tracks from MusicForMarketing.com to create music or slideshow videos ?

I like some of the ones I see on Youtube which play awesome pieces of music, and show a nice picture or rotate through a slide show of pictures.
Can I make these kinds of videos using music and sound tracks from MusicForMarketing.com ?

A) You may NOT create "music videos". See below for Photography and Video demo / showcase reels

Creating “Music Videos” is strictly prohibited.
Creation of music videos is “Strictly Prohibited” under the “Prohibited Uses” (5) section of our license.

In the case of “playing a music track to pictures or slide show”, this IS allowed ONLY under the following conditions, and would be considered a common use for photographers, videographers, advertisers, and other content producers.
a) The “main content” of your video / production must clearly NOT be the music or soundtrack.
b) You may credit the music, however if you do so you must also credit musicformarketing.com as the source.
c) You must ensure you use a title OTHER THAN the music track. For example, if your video title is “Holiday Pictures from Venice”, that is fine. You may NOT for example, name your video title “Mozart Symphony 40”, or the name of any other track used.

Failing to follow the above conditions would fall under the Prohibited Uses clause (2). Such use would clearly be considered as using the music or sound tracks as the “Main Content” which is strictly prohibited.
