Instead of a needle drop fee or laser drop fee (royalty per
use), the TeleVideo ® Music Library buy-out license grants you
what might be called a lifetime
blanket (a 99 year term). This form of licensing lets you use the music worldwide as many
times as you like for a one time charge. Your licensed uses
include audio, video, industrial films and slide presentations as well as multimedia, television,
radio and satellite broadcast. [ Hide]
No, the term copyright free is a misnomer. Even if a piece
of music is in the public domain, the sound recording is probably under copyright. Other so called
license-free approaches can be misleading as well. While they avoid the
work of signing a license agreement, they also avoid spelling out the rights you
think you are buying. [ Hide]
Basically there are 3 rights you need for AV/Video:
Mechanical, Synchronization and Public Performance. The mechanical right lets you re-record the
from a purchased CD or music download. The synchronization right lets you put the music into time
relationship with a picture. Finally, you need the Public
Performance Right. Your TeleVideo ® Music Library Buy-Out License provides
you with all 3 important rights. Other methods are also used when necessary.

Yes, indeed, even if you are producing an AV/Video project
for a client who will actually be the exhibitor. It is a good idea to always supply your client
a copy of your CSS (Content Scramble System) license along with your invoice. Some shows do
require exhibitors to prove their right to use music. If you do
not have a copy of your music license (sample of music license), request a copy by
sending an email to: email@example.com. In your email, provide
the title of song, date of purchase and which music store you purchased it from i.e.,
amazon.com, cdbaby.com, iTunes,com, etc. After your purchase is verified, you will be sent an
email with your license in the form of an attachment. We recommend you save attachment (s) to a
created folder named,
"TVPC Music License". Note: All downloaded music require a distinct
individual license. [Hide]
