LICENSE FAQ

WHAT IS THE CORESOUND UNIVERSAL LICENSE?

Our Universal License is exactly what it sounds like: A license for you to universally use our music in whatever project you'd like!

And best of all, the Universal License is included with every song you download from Coresound at no extra charge.  We want to make the entire royalty-free music licensing process simple for you.

Many royalty-free music companies have several tiers of licenses you have to choose from, depending on what your end project is and how big your audience is.  Sometimes, that process can get confusing.  And sometimes, that process can get expensive.  But at Coresound, you avoid the confusion and extra licensing expenses! 

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I USE A SONG I'VE BOUGHT?

The Universal License that comes with every song in our catalog is good for a single use in an end product.  That means that if you have one video you'd like to use a song in, you're covered!  If you'd like to use the song in multiple videos, you need to purchase that song again to obtain a license for each additional video.  

This does not limit how many times you can show your video, though!  Once your project is done, there are no limits on how many times the video is shown or how big the audience is.

(Note: If you have the Soundtrack Unlimited Plan and would like to use the same song in multiple video projects, please re-download the song as many times as necessary, so you receive a new license for each use.)

DO I NEED TO INCLUDE YOU IN MY FILM CREDITS?

It is not necessary to include Coresound in the credits in your video. If you share the video online and deem it appropriate, we always appreciate our customers linking us in the liner notes and sending people our direction, but it is not necessary to do so.  

WHAT ARE REASONABLE USE GUIDELINES?

Reasonable Use Guidelines help prevent theft or unlicensed use of the content.  

If there are an abnormal amount of downloads from your account in a given period, we will contact you to ensure your account is safe and confirm your usage.  If you have an abnormally high amount of songs you wish to download in a given day, contact us at the menu link above and we'd be happy to work it out with you.

IS THERE AN ADDITIONAL COST FOR BROADCASTING?

No!  There are no additional costs for broadcasting.  The Coresound Universal License covers that, too!

CAN I TRANSFER A SONG LICENSE TO SOMEONE ELSE?

Sorry, you cannot.  Our customers are named as the personal license holder, and the licenses cannot be transferred.
