FACTS ABOUT YOUR LICENSE

It entitles you to synchronize, or join, a piece or pieces of music to pictures, narration, other sounds, in a given medium or media, called a "Use." Your production and the License may include multiple songs and will be billed accordingly. Please read your license carefully. It becomes effective upon successful checkout and payment.

If your production is publicly performed (broadcast or transmitted by any means) you must secure a performance license from BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC or directly from The Buzz Music Library.
