Forgive us, we have to do this bit . . .
Unauthorised synchronisation use, copying, retail, hiring, lending, broadcast and public performance of our music and sound effects is prohibited.
The copyright and recording rights in the music on this website are owned by Audio Network Plc. If you breach any of our terms and conditions, we reserve the right to take action.
All our licences are designed to be straightforward and concise. The following terms and conditions are designed to explain what you can and can't do with our music. If you are unsure about any aspect of music use please call us on +44 (0) 1787 477277 or email email@example.com.
Downloading your music/distribution policy
If you wish to download music you must select a user type from the options available. After purchasing your tracks, your licence will be emailed to you automatically.
Reporting your music use
As with any music used in productions for broadcast or cinema, you’ll need to fill in a music cue sheet. Please send a copy of the cue sheet to Audio Network. You can either post us the copy of the completed forms to:
School Farm Studios,
Or email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Changes to your production
The download rate covers use of the track in only one production. If you want to use the same track in two different productions you will need to download the track twice. Any changes to your original production, trailers etc, will classify as a ‘new’ production.
If you need to use several tracks in your production(s), or if you need lots of versions of tracks, a blanket licence will usually work out cheaper. Our rate card lists all available options for blanket licences, or call our sales team on +44 (0)20 7566 1441 for more details.
Using our music in other ways
Our standard licences are issued for synchronising our music with your pictures (audio-visual use). Music-only productions (such as audio-only CDs) require a special licence agreement, without which, music may not be re-recorded, duplicated or re-sold. Please contact us for details.
Public performance of your production
Audio Network is a member of the Performing Right Society (PRS) in the UK and equivalent overseas societies. This means that every public performance (broadcast, website use, live events etc) of your production needs to be covered by a public performance licence. It is the responsibility of the broadcaster, live music venue or website owner (not the production company) to clear this licence with the local performing rights society.
The societies then divide up this licence fee income amongst composers and publishers whose music has been used. This is why it is important for production companies to fill in cue sheets so the broadcaster can give the local performing rights society information on what music it has used.
If you wish to pre-clear the US cinematic rights or other US public performance rights direct with Audio Network, please call us for details.
Audio Network owns all of its sound recordings, so no additional PPL (Phonographic Performance Limited) licence is required for public performance of our sound recordings.
Cancellation & Refund Policy
If you request in writing to cancel your licence fee within 30 days confirming that the music has not been used, Audio Network undertakes to cancel your licence and issue a credit to your account or credit card.
