IS THIS ROYALTY-FREE MUSIC?
No, the music found at Day For Night is not royalty-free. It is bespoke music and original composition made by musical fine artists whose means of support and compensation is provided through royalties and fees from licensing.
WHAT KIND OF MEDIA DISTRIBUTION REQUIRES A MUSIC LICENSE?
This license involves recorded music used to accompany any form of broadcast or distribution that is intended for other users; ie, anything other than for personal use. This includes, but is not limited to the following:
- advertising music (also known as commercial jingles)
- cinema (theatre) music
- production music for corporate presentation and corporate videos
- background music for radio spots
- television show soundtracks
- feature film music used either incidentally, or as part of the soundtrack
- music featured in the opening or closing title sequence of a film
- music used in advertisement for film as part of a theatrical or online trailer

DO PODCASTS REQUIRE A MUSIC LICENSE?
ARE PODCASTS TREATED THE SAME AS MP3 DOWNLOADS?
Licensing of music for Podcasts are treated as though part-download (due to the MP3 format used) and part-broadcast (due to the syndicated RSS publication feed which syndicates via podcatching applications like iTunes).
Day For Night makes specialty licensing rates available, which are advantageous to the individual podcaster, and which are nominally only a little more than the price of a personal MP3 download, but cost less than radio distribution. The podcast license is both a legally-binding bridge between the content creator and the podcast producer. Distributing 3rd-party digital downloads of any copyright-controlled music, where the copyright holder is not the self, is otherwise illegal.
DO I ALWAYS NEED TO CONTACT A MUSIC SUPERVISOR BEFORE OBTAINING A LICENSE?
Not necessarily; however, a pair of synchronization documents will need to be produced upon request before manufacturing and distributing any music licensed from us. You will more than likely require a Master-Use confirmation and/or a Synchronization/Theatrical Performance Use Confirmation form, if the licensed music is for distribution (such as on DVD).
