QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE:
WHAT IS A SYNCHRONIZATION LICENSE AND DO I NEED ONE?
A synchronization license gives you the right to “synchronize" a song (sound recording “master” and/or composition “song”) with audio visual recordings, such as Videos, Films, Video Games, Television, etc. So, if you’d like to use our music in your audio visual production, you will need a synchronization license from us.
WHAT RIGHTS DO I GET WITH A SYNCHRONIZATION LICENSE?
It’s up to you! During the licensing process, you choose which rights you want. Here is an overview of licenses available through our online system:
Crowdfunding (i.e. Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, GoFundMe, etc.)
Personal YouTube Video
There are many other options available that will require a Custom License Request. You can fill out the Custom License Request Form and give us the details of your production. We will then be in touch to work out a License specifically for you.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PURCHASING MUSIC AND LICENSING A SONG?
When you purchase music on iTunes, Amazon, CD’s, etc., you are buying the music for personal listening purposes only. Whether you listen on your iPod, computer or stereo – you bought it, you can listen to it however you want! However, if you want to use a song in an audio visual production you will need to license it.
CAN I USE MY LICENSED SONG IN MORE THAN ONE PRODUCTION?
Sorry, but no. Each song is licensed individually for one production.
CAN I USE MULTIPLE SONGS IN ONE PROJECT?
Yes! However, if you’d like to use multiple songs in the same project, you’ll need to license each song separately.
CAN I GET A BLANKET LICENSE FOR A PROJECT?
Absolutely! Position Music can set up a blanket license for you, which would mean you could use as much music as you want for a monthly/yearly/per project fee. Please contact us directly to discuss.
WHEN I UPLOADED MY VIDEO TO YOUTUBE I RECEIVED A “3RD PARTY MATCHED CONTENT” NOTICE.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
YouTube uses a system called Content ID to fingerprint music and allow the owners of the music to track and/or monetize the use of their music on YouTube. When YouTube recognizes a song that is being used in a video it alerts the uploader that the video contains music owned by a “Third Party” (that would be us in this case).
It does not mean you are receiving a copyright infringement notice or that a strike is being placed on your channel. It also won’t cause your video to be taken down. It does, however, restrict you from monetizing the video yourself on YouTube.
CAN I HAVE THE ADVERTISING REMOVED FROM MY YOUTUBE VIDEO?
Yes. If you have licensed the song in your video from us you can request to have the claim removed. Email us the URL of the video at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow you to have no advertisements displayed on your video.
AM I ABLE TO MONETIZE MY VIDEO?
Yes. If you have licensed the song in your video from us you can request to have the claim removed. Email us the URL of the video at email@example.com. This will allow you to monetize your video.
Any of the license types provided on our website will allow you to monetize your video. We also specifically have the Personal YouTube Video license type for non-commercial videos made for YouTube.
I'M A FREEDOM! USER. DO I HAVE TO LICENSE MUSIC FOR MY YOUTUBE VIDEOS?
No. We have an overall deal with Freedom! to allow their channel partners to use select music from Position Music for free. For more specifics you can check out the Freedom FAQ page.
