FAQ - Social Media

The answers given here apply to the "Social Media" license. Make sure you read and understand the answers given below before you make your purchase.

How can I use the music with this license?  

With this license, you can use the licensed music in one video that you share on social media. Some of the most popular social platforms include YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitch. Your video can be monetized on these platforms as long as you abide by the license terms.

There are some restrictions you need to follow if you purchase this license for a video ("Final Product").

The Licensed Material may not be used in a Final Product where the main focus is on the Licensed Material. For instance, you cannot make videos similar to the videos produced by the Licensor, as the main focus of these videos is on the music. In general, your viewers should watch the Final Product because of your original content, not the music.

Furthermore, the title of the Final Product cannot include any of the following terms or phrases:

  1. The title of the Licensed Material
  2. The composer's name (Peder B. Helland)
  3. Licensor’s name or its trademarks
  4. Any mention or description of the music (e.g. "music", "relaxing music", "piano music", "music for relaxation" or similar terms)
    1. If you want to add terms like this to your title, it's highly likely that the main focus of your Final Product is on the music (which is not allowed).

If the Final Product is a guided meditation distributed as a video in social media, it can contain parts without any voice-over as long as there is a voice-over for at least 1/2 of the total duration.

Can I buy this license for a guided meditation?

If you only intend to publish your guided meditation as a video on social media platforms, you can do this with our social media license.
