The term Royalty Free Music reffers to the model of music licensing, in which the licensor grants the licensee the specified rights (licenses) for use of a track for a single fee (license fee), and with no additional charges.
The term Royalty-Free does not rigidly describe one particular form of license agreement. Music libraries provide various models for royalty-free licensing as a result of their offer. There are, however, few elements which are typical for RoyaltyFree, mainly:
- One-time license fee, i.e. no need to renew the license or paying more fees, e.g. annually.
- Wide range of usage, in which the track can be utilised – the music is not licensed with one particular way of use in mind (e.g. only for TV advertisement or TV + Internet). Usually the license is open to many media with a specified range.
- No time or territorial limits as to the validity of the license.
- Relatively low license fee.
Royalty-free license is a non-exclusive license. This means that the same track can be licensed for multiple clients at the same time. Such approach helps to maintain the low-level license fee.
