How can I use this music in my project? Can I monetize?
If you buy one of these tracks you can use it as background music in your commercial and personal projects. You can make money with your project. You can NOT sell, share, or distribute the music alone. As long as you are making something new that uses the music in the background, you should be good to go! Additionally, the customer may in no way inhibit the ability for others to use the music in their projects. This includes submitting your project to a service that will create copyright claims against others using the music (such as Content ID). This music is not copyright-free, it is royalty-free, meaning that paying customers may use the music according to the guidelines of the creator (who is the copyright holder).
Where can I find my download links after purchasing music?
There are multiple ways to find your download links after purchasing:
They are displayed on the final checkout page after a completed purchase.
They are emailed to the email you used during purchase. Check your spam and promotions folders if you don’t see them within 10 minutes.
You can log in or sign up for an account (using the email used during purchase) and your downloads will be displayed on the Purchase History page.
You may NOT post the music alone on your YouTube channel. The general rule is that the music should be in the background of a new project. Good examples are guided meditations, yoga videos, and short films. Projects like these, with the music in the background, can be posted on YouTube and monetized. However, If your YouTube channel is devoted to sharing “relaxing music,” for example, you may not post the music there. This is an important guideline within our royalty-free license.
If you aren’t sure whether you can post it, ask yourself the following: “Is the focus of my video the music itself?” If the answer is yes, then you can’t post it. If the answer is no, then you can post it!
Good examples of acceptable uses of the music:
guided meditations (background music)
yoga videos (background music)
narrated videos (background music)
ASMR videos (background music)
massage (background music)
yoga studio (background music)
online courses (background music)
in-person courses (background music)
affirmation recordings/videos (background music)
Unacceptable uses of music:
relaxing music videos and YouTube channels
free music giveaways to clients
SILENT affirmation recordings/videos (your voice must be audible over the music for these types of projects)
reselling/redistributing the music
Using ContentID or any other type of content identification service that may inhibit the ability for others to use the music
Why are you charging for “royalty-free” music?
It is a common misconceptions that “royalty-free” means “free”, but that is not the case. Royalty-free music allows those who have obtained a license to use the music in their project (according to the guidelines of the creator) without the need to pay ongoing royalties to the creator. Most royalty-free music has a fee to use. We have an article that explains royalty-free music in more detail.
Will I get copyright claims when using your music?
It is rare, but if you do happen to get a copyright claim, please dispute the claim immediately and state that you have purchased rights from the copyright holder to use the music. This will usually resolve the issue, but it will be up to the other party to release the claim. We do everything we can to help prevent this from happening, but this is an unfortunate reality and one of the risks of using royalty-free music. All this said, the large majority of our customers have never had to deal with a copyright claim, so it hopefully won’t be an issue for you! Please read this article for more details about how to dispute a copyright claim on YouTube.
Can I use this music in my music streaming app?
Our royalty-free license does not allow for streaming of the music alone, such as in apps. You will need to get in touch and ask about a special licensing arrangement for that. Alternatively, you can check out the service Adaptr, which offers music for apps. We have added some of our music to this service, so you can try to incorporate it into your app that way!
Can I use this music in my Twitch streams?
Sure! You can purchase a license to any of these tracks and use it as background music for your streams. Alternatively, we have started adding music to the service Soundtrack by Twitch, so you could try to use the music through that service as well.
Can I use this music in my TikToks, Instagram Stories, and Facebook Stories?
Yes! You can use it for free by simply searching for the tracks within the system and adding them to the background of your videos on these platforms. Alternatively, you can purchase a license to any of these tracks and manually add it as background music. That will give you more control to edit and manipulate the music, but either method is fine!
Can I share your music with my friend who needs it for their project?
Please don’t share the music files but please do share a link back to this website! We charge very little for this music and believe that it is a wonderful, cost-effective service for creators like you. Keep in mind that we are also creators and stealing/sharing music directly impacts the creator of the music you are using.
Will you modify or alter these tracks for my film project?
Yes (with some exceptions), but it is not free! Get in touch to get a quote on that.
Hey, I bought your music on another site for more money than you’re asking for here! What’s up with that?!
We have some tracks offered in different marketplaces and the price may vary. We always suggest getting your music on this website, but we cannot reimburse you if you purchased some of our music elsewhere. In the case of Pond5, their minimum price for music is $15. We try to keep it as low as possible, but we also want to share our music with Pond5 customers. Some marketplaces have a minimum price, which is higher than what we charge here. There isn’t much we can do about that, sorry!
I also am uploading some music to MediaNet, which provides some options for businesses. Feel free to use that service as well. I’m not sure what they are charging at the moment.
If you see our music available elsewhere and it looks like it was not posted by us, please let us know!
So, can I be reimbursed for the extra money I paid by purchasing your tracks at Pond5?
No, sorry. The prices on Pond5 are more than fair! Feel free to buy new tracks on this site in the future, as they may be less money!
We try to add new music at least once per month, but usually more frequently!
I want to buy a bundle of tracks, but I don’t like the bundles you have for sale. What can I do?
If you’d like to make your own custom bundle, please add over $60 of individual tracks to your cart and use the discount code CUSTOMBUNDLE during checkout for 20% off. This coupon code does not apply to other bundles/albums. Please add only individual tracks for this deal. Thank you!
Do I have to credit the composer?
It is not required, but it is definitely requested! Whenever possible, please credit the composer as follows: “Music by Chris Collins, https://indiemusicbox.com“
