I make most of my income from music so it’s important for me to value it. However, I am also happy to let people use it for free under certain circumstances.
My music is mainly composed for use in media projects, but I am aware that some of it can be appreciated as music on its own. If you wish to listen to it, feel free to listen on my YouTube channel. Alternatively, get in touch if you wish to have mp3 versions.
Personal Media Projects
If you wish to use my music for free in your non-money making projects, including YouTube, Facebook channel, home video etc. I am completely fine with this providing you are happy with two caveats:
- You don’t mind me monetizing the video (YouTube, Facebook) – This will just show a small advert on your video
- You credit the music with a clickable link – See more about crediting me below
Personal Projects that Create Money
If you have a hobby, for example, a YouTube channel that is earning you money and you don’t want me to monetize my music on your video, I reserve the right to charge a small license fee for use of my music. I can whitelist your videos/channels when you purchase a license from me. I am happy to be flexible with the costs if your channel or project is not generating a large income.
Business / Commercial Projects
If your sole aim is to generate money, for example from advertising, video or product creation and you wish to use my music as part of it, you must purchase a license to use my music. My music can be licensed at Media Music Now just following the links from the music or get in touch.
The important aspect is the link to my music library website. For this reason, please say anything you like but always include this exact url in your descriptions online as it will then link.
Any other text is fine. For example
- Music from Media Music Now https://www.mediamusicnow.co.uk/royalty-free-music.aspx
- [Tack name] by Lee Pritchard https://www.mediamusicnow.co.uk/royalty-free-music.aspx
For printed projects please just say: Music by Lee Pritchard, MediaMusicNow.co.uk
Get in touch if you are unsure.
