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.
All our tracks are offered under a royalty-free agreement. 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, but we invite you to fin out more on the policies of your favourite marketplace: in addition to pinegroove.net our portfolio is in fact released on a variety of licensing platforms (see 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.
A simple rule for understanding royalty-free model is that you can do whatever you want with the music according to the license type you picked except re-selling the track as a stand-alone product.
To make things easier, at the moment none of our music tracks is registered under any P.R.O. (Performing Rights Organisation) such as ASCAP or BMI, so you do not have to fill in any cue sheet when you use our music.
99% of our tracks are not fingerprinted, however, recently we decided to register very few tracks from our portfolio with Content ID in order to protect us from piracy.
As you may know, Content ID is a popular digital fingerprinting system that music producers can use to easily identify and manage their copyrighted content on YouTube.
For the very few tracks registered with Content Id you will find a note in description. If you receive a claim from YouTube on your licensed track, just email us the link of your video and your YouTube channel and we will clear the claim for you within minutes so you’ll be able to monetize your video immediately.

Many of our partner marketplaces offer multiple versions for our track: Luckstock, Pond5, Motion Elements, 123RF.com are some of them. If you can’t find the alternate version you are looking for don’t hesitate to contact us here.
