Royalty Free Music Licensing Agreement

A license to use the purchased music is hereby granted to the person or company to whom the attached invoice is issued (hereinafter referred to as “the licensee” or “you”), or your nominated licensee.

You have permission to use the purchased music as outlined in our license terms below. This license is non-exclusive and non-transferable and may not be re-sold, given or hired to any third party, except when the license holder is a developer who has developed a product for his or her client, which uses the music. The developer may then hold the license on behalf of his client. There may be only one client per license.

This music licensing agreement shall become effective upon purchase of the music track.

1. Permitted Uses of Our Music

Spoken-word Audio Recordings

You can use our music as a backing track to any kind of spoken-word recording. For example, guided meditations, hypnosis, positive affirmations or instructional recordings. You may use the music to create as many different recordings as you like and you may sell, stream or distribute an unlimited quantity of these recordings, in any format, in as many online or offline stores as you like.

Please note that you may create spoken word recordings, videos and live streams with our music and leave the music "naked" (without an accompanying voiceover) for up to two thirds of the total duration of each music track. In other words, at least one third of your recording must include speech.

For example, you could create a 30 minute hypnosis recording in which you speak for the first 10 minutes and then allow the music to play by itself for the remaining 20 minutes. However, you must ensure that your finished recording is one continuous 30 minute track (not two separate tracks; one 10 minute meditation and then a separate 20 minute music-only track).

YouTube & Other Online Videos

You can use our music as a backing track in videos you create for YouTube and other online video hosting services, and you are permitted to monetize your videos.

Live Streaming & Video Conferencing

You can use our music as a backing track for any kind of realtime video conferencing or live streaming, for example, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Twitch, Zoom and Skype.

Film & Multimedia Productions

You can use our music in the background of films, multimedia projects, corporate presentations and audio-visual tutorials. You may sell, stream or distribute an unlimited quantity of these videos in digital formats and as DVDs, in as many online or offline stores as you like.

TV & Radio Broadcast

In order to use our music in any TV & radio broadcast, you need to obtain a special license. For more information about licensing for TV & Radio please contact us at https://www.musicofwisdom.com/

Public Broadcast

You can play our music at a commercial venue with a limit of 1 location per license. For example, day spas, hotels, restaurants, conferences, on-hold music. You can also play our music during consultations with clients or patients. For example, meditation or yoga classes, hypnotherapy, physical therapy and medical procedures.

Personalized Recordings

You can use our music repeatedly as a backing track in spoken word recordings that you create on a case by case basis for your clients or patients. Hypnotherapists commonly use our music in this way. Please note that recordings such as these cannot be duplicated, distributed or sold by your clients. Only you, the licensee, have the right to create and sell recordings that incorporate the music.

Software Applications

You can use our music in the background of a software app for any device, however you cannot use our music if your app is designed to play the music by itself. In other words, you must either (a) combine the music with a voiceover or (b) your app must require continuous user engagement, for example, an interactive game.

If you wish to use our music in your app without the addition of a voiceover, we may be able to grant you a special license. For more information about licensing for music streaming apps please contact us at https://www.musicofwisdom.com/ 

2. Prohibited Uses of Our Music

Distributing the Music by Itself

You cannot sell, stream or distribute our music as an ‘audio only’ product. This means that you cannot sell CDs or digital downloads of our music, nor can you stream our music online or via software applications.

Subliminal Recordings

You cannot use our music to create subliminal recordings, in which your voice is inaudible, and sell or monetize as ‘audio only’ product. Your voice may be quiet, but it must be audible.

Creating Derivative Works

You cannot alter our music and then claim that the music is yours. For example, you cannot add brainwave entrainment frequencies or nature sounds or singing to our music and then sell or distribute the music as your own product. Any audio production you create must include a spoken word voiceover.

Using the Title of Our Music as the Title of Your Production

You cannot use the title of our music as the title of any media production that incorporates the music. For example, if you used the music “Dreams oF Awakening” to create a guided meditation recording, you could not give your recording the title “Dreams OF Awakening”.

Sub-Licensing the Music

You cannot sub-license our music to any third party. You cannot distribute our music as part of a production music library, as stock music, royalty free music library, or within any kind of media creation software.

If you create any products that incorporate our music (for example, CDs, audio downloads or videos), you may distribute an unlimited number of copies of those products at any price you choose.

5. Responsible Publishing

If you publish an audio recording that incorporates our music, you must ensure that your publisher does not apply any services such as “Sync Licensing” or “Content ID Matching” to your recording.

Content ID Matching, Sync Licensing (and other similar services) are designed to identify and claim against other recordings that sound similar to your recording. These services should never be used for spoken word recordings that use royalty free background music. These services are only for musicians and bands that release original music.
