What you cannot do with our music
You cannot simply re-sell or give our music away as a music only product, this is classed as sub-licensing. You cannot include our music in a physical product where the music is played on it's own, it must be incorporated into a production of some kind i.e. There must be a bespoke scripted voice over (this only applies to productions where there is no visual element) or synced with a visual element where the main focus is on the production.
You cannot claim any intellectual rights to our music even if you rearrange, chop up effect or add any vocals to the music. We remain the sole copyright owners of the music.
You are not allowed to create derived works of our music. This means that if you are a singer, rapper, music producer etc, you cannot buy our music then add your own voice or instruments and then treat that music as your own. This is known as "creating derived works" and it is not allowed.
You are however allowed to use our music as background music and add your voice over the music in products such as healing/meditation/self-help tapes, audio-books etc. Here, even though you have added your voice over the music, you have not created new music based on our music (i.e. you haven't created derived musical works) so that usage is fine.
*You must not include the music in a ringtone App or where the music is to be re-sold as a music product.
