Royalty free music for video

The term free royalty or royalty free music refers to the type of contract or license and not the type of music. Royalty free music can be of any genre and is usually created by independent composers, bands and artists who control all of their copyright.

There are many websites where you can sell this kind of royalty-free music where you can immediately download music with your use licenses, to use immediately.

In addition, with today's technology now easily accessible, there are many sites that allow composers to upload their own content to license royalty-free music. This is not ideal as there is no quality control and identity theft can be a problem. It is highly recommended to use trusted suppliers who have quality controls.

With recent advances in professional audio equipment, there are now a large number of composers, bands and artists who write music exclusively for royalty-free music libraries. Libraries effectively provide a platform for independent composers to generate regular income. The most reputable libraries are committed to promoting and marketing their music to a level that a composer could not easily reach.


Independent composers who write, record and produce their own music own all copyrights. This means that they can give permission to anyone who wants to use it, or they can give permission for a library to sell royalty free music licenses on their behalf.

Types of copyright

Synchronization: is the right to include visual elements or movies.

Mechanical reproduction: it is the right to make duplicates of the product / production that contain the music.

There is a lot of confusion on the part of the users about the rights that are transferred in the music free of rights. When buying royalty-free music, a license is usually granted for synchronizing and mechanical reproduction, although the terms vary from one vendor to another. You do not get a license to cover the enforcement rights. This is true for almost all royalty free music, although there are very few exceptions that have 100% royalty free music.

Freeaudiolibrary with its use license allows the use of music for synchronization and public communication.
