Am I allowed to use a song more than once?

No, you must purchase a new license in order to use the same music again in any given project.

Here are some examples:
You use 1 song in 1 video = 1 license
You use 1 song in 5 videos = 5 licenses
You use 3 songs in 1 video = 3 licenses
You use 3 songs in 5 videos = 15 licenses

Special cases
Intros:
For a title used in an intro, the one-time purchase of a license is sufficient. The intro can then be used as often as you want.
If the intro changes visually or acoustically, a new license must be purchased.
Loop:
A single song can be played multiple times within a video, as long as it is played in a loop.

Is there a license that allows me to use a song for an unlimited number of projects?

No, we currently do not offer a license or license extension that allows the use of a song for an unlimited number of projects.

Do you offer exclusive licenses?

No, we currently do not offer exclusive licenses.

My project needs to be adapted (e.g. another language version). Do I need another license?

Yes, as soon as a project (such as a video) is adapted and changed textually, visually or acoustically, you need another license.

Example:
You want to create your video bilingually (an English and a French version). For this you need two licenses.

My project needs to be exported to various technical formats. Do I need another license?

No, as long as the content of the project does not change, you can export your project to any number of technical formats.

Examples:
You want to export your video to a 16: 9, a 1: 1 and a 4: 3 format.
You want to export your podcast episode to WAV, MP3 and AIFF.

What isn´t allowed?

You are not allowed to use our music without a project. A pure resale of a song is excluded.

Examples:
- You want to create a hypnosis CD and simply publish our songs on it? That is not allowed.
- You want to create a hypnosis CD and use our songs as background music with a voice over (e.g. a speaker voices hypnosis instructions)? This is allowed.

A project presupposes that the music is a part of your creative work but not the entirety.

I would like to use a song in an intro. Do I have to buy a license every time I use it?

No! For a song used in an intro, the one-time purchase of a license is sufficient. The intro can then be used as often as you want. If the intro changes visually or acoustically, a new license must be purchased.

Can I publish videos I created for a customer as a reference on my own website?

You may publish the videos as a reference on your own website without purchasing an additional license.

I'm not sure which license is right for me.

Please answer the following questions one by one:

1) Are you a single individual who creates a project for himself or herself or relatives and friends?
YES - please go to question 2.
NO - the Professional License is the correct license.

2) Is the project in which the song is to be used commercial?
YES - the Professional License is the correct license.
NO - please go to question 3.

3) Will more than 1,000 listeners or viewers see or hear your media?
YES - the Professional License is the correct license.
NO - the Personal License is for you.

A private project became a commercial project. What should I do?

It can happen that the number of subscriptions to your YouTube channel or your video exceeds the 1,000 mark or that you want to earn money through advertising (e.g., ads, product placement, affiliate). In this case you must purchase a Professional License. The previously-purchased Personal License can not be used in this case. The all-round package with no worries about limits can only be enjoyed with the Professional License.


Background Music Bundles

I purchased a background music bundle. Am I allowed to use the songs within a project (e.g. a video)?

No. Songs from a background music package may only be used offline as a background music in public places on a PA system (e.g. as background music in a restaurant or event). If you want to have a song included in a project (e.g. in a video), you must buy a Professional License for this song separately.

I purchased a custom MyBundle background music package but did not use the maximum number of songs. Can I add songs later?

No, unfortunately no songs can be added later. We therefore recommend that you always use the maximum number of songs.


Account & Check Out

I work on behalf of a customer. Can I register it as a licensee?

Yes, if you have registered as a business account, in the last step of the check out process you can enter a licensee address. In this case, the invoice address is issued to you and the licensee address to your customer.

Where can I find the invoice?

In the customer area you will find a small gray button at the top right of your order, with which you can download the invoice.

Where can I find the license certificate?

In the customer section with your order you will find a small button on the top right hand side where you can download the license certificate. This document is required if you want to produce DVDs, for example. The license document certifies that the song is royalty free and free of any Performance Rights Organization (e.g. ASCAP, MCPS-PRS, SACEM, GEMA, SUISA, AKM etc.) fees.

Where do I enter my full billing address?

Please enter your full billing address on your first order.

Is it possible to insert own internal data on the invoice?

Yes this is possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us: info@audeeyah.com so that we can enable this function for you. You are then able to enter additional invoice details in the last check out step.

Can changes be made to the license certificate, the licensee or the invoice after the order has been made?

No. The information entered by you during the check out can not be changed after the order has been completed.

I would like to convert my account from PRIVATE to BUSINESS (or vice versa).

Your selection (private or business) is permanent and can NOT be changed. If you still want to use another type of account, please register with another email address as a new customer.
