All our music [“Legacy Tracks” not included] is released using the Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND license, and you can download and use our music for non-commercial and non-derivative purposes. What this means in more plain terms is, that you’re allowed to download any track for free, share it with others and listen to it on your preferred music player, but you’re not allowed to release videos and other projects where the music has been adapted, to the public using the free CC-BY-NC-ND licensed version.
Commercial Use & Syncronization
If you want to use it for a project you make available to the public like a video or a game, we ask that you buy a waiver. A waiver is like an add-on to the existing license granting you extra privileges, i.e. commercial use. This is also known as CC+ licensing, because we start out with a verbatim Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND license, and grant extra permissions in an independent agreement.
The waiver granting you the right to use the music for derivative (i.e. synchronization) and commercial purposes is provided in exchange for a fee. When you buy one of our three payload options available (24Bit High Fidelity, Multi Stem & ELIAS), a personalised license with a unique ID is automatically included in your purchase granting you the right to use the music for derivative, commercial purposes without having to provide attribution.
Legacy Tracks are what was referred to as “Free” up until April 25, 2015. Legacy Tracks are all licensed under Creative Commons Attribution, and you are free to use these for commercial purposes when providing credit (credit is referred to as Attribution in legal terminology).
