Ownership of the music and Intellectual Property Rights
The composer Jan Jurstrand owns and controls all the Rights and Copyrights of the music that you are licensing, both the musical composition and the recording, and they are protected by international copyright laws. The Licensor has taken measures to protect the music from illegal usage.
You do not acquire any proprietary rights or copyrights to the music (musical compositions or recordings) when you purchase a License.
Performance Rights Organizations (PRO) and Cue Sheets
In most cases, as the end-user of the Recording, you don’t have to worry about the Royalties. This is why it is often called Royalty-Free Music. You just have to pay for the License once, nothing more.
Now, if the Recording is broadcasted, for example on TV, radio or in film production, then Public Performance royalties are owed to the composer. These royalties are paid by the company or network that broadcasts the music, and they have to prepare a cue sheet with the information about how the music has been used and send this to the corresponding performance rights organisation (PRO). But you, as the end-user of the Recording, don’t have to pay any royalties to use the music.
Please send an email to email@example.com with more information about how your project is going to be used so that more details and the composers PRO membership number can be sent to you.
Whenever it is possible, please credit the composer in your end product like this:
