Our automated licensing system will walk you through the process and will work for 99% of licenses.  If you need to obtain multiple licenses over months or years, consider getting a "blanket license" so that you can have access to the entire library.  Please contact us for more information.

Free synch and master rights are offered to National Network Broadcasters paying annual licensing fees to Performance Rights Organizations (PROs). In exchange, the networks agree to send Freeplay copies of their music cue sheets. The PROs then pay Freeplay Music and its composers performance royalties. These terms only apply to network broadcasts that originate in the United States. Foreign or overseas broadcast must obtain a paid license. Please thoroughly read our Terms Of Use to see if you qualify.

A cue sheet is a document prepared by a producer that reports all music used in a TV broadcast production. Cue sheets typically list (in the order in which they are broadcast) the individual songs that were used in a production, their composers, publishers, the amount of time each song was played, and the way they were used (as a background cue or an opening theme, for example). Once prepared, cue sheets are then submitted to Performing Rights Organizations (PROs) which pay royalties to the entitled composers and publishers listed on the cue sheet.

Freeplay Music thrives on submissions and we'd love to give you a chance to be a part of the FPM library! We value your creativity and we look for high quality and salability in our music.

Freeplay pays its composers a pre-negotiated percentage of applicable direct licensing income on a quarterly basis. All revenue generated by royalties are the responsibility of the composers' Performance Rights Organization.
