Beat Licensing Explained

Beat_Licensing_Explained.png

Beat license is either non-exclusive or exclusive. Check HERE to see what the difference between non-exclusive and exclusive licenses is and which one is better suited for you.

We offer 4 different licenses. First three licenses are non-exclusive as the last one, Exclusive license, is, well, exclusive. 😏

You can download an audio tagged version of every beat for free but you cannot make any money with it. You have to buy a license if you want to use the beat for profit purposes.

You can make a music video and upload it to YouTube with any license. We may show ads (YouTube Content ID) on your video if you are using a free version. We will remove a Content ID claim upon request if you provide us proof that you have purchased a license.

Let’s take a closer look what you get with each license.
