LICENSES AND RESTRICTIONS ON USE

HookSounds and its Artists are supported exclusively via music licensing, and every dollar makes a difference. It has no ads nor sponsors. By purchasing a license you are contributing to this project’s funding and helping us (We and our Artists) to keep it going and make a difference in this project’s future, which leads to more music!

FREE license: Use & Mention

Note: In order to be allowed to use the USE & MENTION license, your project must not fall into any of the categories listed in our other license uses. Check our licensing page for more information.

Although we really appreciate that our users support Artists by licensing their music, most of our music is also licensed under the our Use & Mention license (which is essentially a Creative Common License) for some limited uses, that means you must credit our artwork by placing a link to https://www.hooksounds.com on your website, video or wherever your music is used.

If you don’t want, you are not allowed to credit our music, if you need the music in lossless audio format (WAV files) or if your project is covered by any of our other licenses (see tables above), then you need to buy a license.

Paid licenses: PRO, BUSINESS, BROADCAST

Be sure to read all license options, although the most common license is the BUSINESS License, we offer two licenses more depending of the type of project you are going to use the music for. In general, PRO License gives you lifetime rights to use the music for personal uses,  like videos, websites,  animation, without need to give attribution.

The BUSINESS License give you rights for Internet Advertising, Podcasts, Music on hold, films for public screening, Local TV/Radio advertising, Indie films,  software, video games, apps.

The BROADCAST License gives you rights for National and International TV/Radio Advertising, Theatrically released films, Cinema TV/Radio Broadcasting, all for unlimited audience sizes. This was designed for all kind of uses and cover the majority of all cases for professional uses.

If you are not sure which is the correct license for your use or if you want to discuss an Exclusive License for a particular item, please, contact us and we will guide you with the best solution for your project.
