Choose the right license for your content
Frequently Asked Questions
“Royalty-free” usually refers to a licensing method under which music rights are sold at a flat rate for almost all purposes. This is in contrast to rights-managed licensing, when a music license is priced based on how the track will be used. Rights-managed licenses usually come with usage restrictions, including length of time, regions, audience size, and more.
Recently all the main marketplaces where we release our tracks have been gradually opting for an hybrid approach with licensing, mixing features from both royalty-free and rights-managed systems. Therefore contents provided by these agencies are often subject to specific limitations and different terms of service, despite still being considered as royalty-free.
Licenses delivered from pinegroove.net are granted on a perpetual per-project basis. That means there is no time limitation and your license is good for the life of the original project it was granted for. This rule applies generally to all our optional partner marketplaces.
In addition to pinegroove.net our portfolio is also released on a variety of licensing platforms (see the links below), in order to allow our clients to choose the licensing model and terms they prefer, in a way they might find a particular marketplace more convenient or more suitable for their projects. In any case, from YouTube to traditional broadcast you can use our music on multiple media anywhere in the world, but it’s our interest that you pay only for what you need.
Furthermore at the moment none of our music tracks is registered under a PRO (Performing Rights Organisation) such as ASCAP or BMI.
Absolutely not. Content ID is a popular digital fingerprinting system that music producers can use to easily identify and manage their copyrighted content on YouTube. AdRev (and other companies such as Audiam, TuneCore, etc) are YouTube Partner platforms that use the Content ID system to manage and administer this copyrighted content on behalf of content owners.
When a track is fingerprinted by AdRev there is a risk that your video on Youtube might be blocked for some time until clarification. In order to save you the trouble of solving this annoying clarification processes, we totally and strongly avoided registering our music tracks under the AdRev Content ID system, so that there should not be any copyright issues with our music featured in your videos and you can fully monetize your works.
Sometimes our music can be stolen and registered without our permission under Contend ID system: it never happened, but if you receive a “matched third party content” copyright notice via YouTube about our music used on your YouTube video please contact us as soon as possible and we’ll help to clear that out.
