To keep things super simple, I only offer two licenses. I don’t care whether your project is commercial, or how big it is – so there are no tiers for “broadcast use” or “cinema” or “advert with over 10,000 views/downloads” etc. just these two licenses…

Please note: To use the Creative Commons license on YouTube, you MUST add credits to the video description. My music is registered with Content ID and uncredited videos will be detected.

Pro License

This is the excitingly-named license you want if you are unable, or don’t want to have to give a credit somewhere. It costs a flat $25 per track and comes with the uncompressed file for you to use. 

Creative Commons License

If you’re happy to give a credit, this is the license for you! In return for credit you can use the track in your project for free! You can easily download a high-quality MP3 on this website with no fuss.

Rights

Here are the rights you get with either licensing option.

What can I do?

  • You can use all music for commercial and noncommercial use across physical and digital products, except in the cases mentioned in “What can I NOT do?”
  • Yes! You can use the music for the following purposes:
    • Videos or Livestreams on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitch or similar
    • Videos/Films/Cinema/Documentary
    • TV/Radio
    • Theaters
    • Video Games
    • Live Production
    • Podcasts
    • Audio Dramas
    • Sound reinforcement for events or locations
    • Hold Music/Background Music
    • Pretty much anything else
  • You can modify or manipulate the music to suit your needs, e.g. turn the volume down, make transitions, stretch, cut, etc.
  • You can create an end product for you or for a third party/client

Restrictions

What can I NOT do?

  • You can not re-distribute the music as is or with superficial modifications. (Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, iTunes etc.) I already self-publish my music. The terms of use of most stores don’t allow you to sell music that you don’t own the exclusive rights to, anyway
  • You can not sub-license any music. New licenses need to be acquired via silvermansound.com
  • You are not allowed to claim ownership of the music, whether it’s in original form or altered under this clause. Don’t be cheeky
  • You are not allowed to register any music through content identification systems (on YouTube, Facebook, Twitch and similar platforms). This one just makes me really sad...
  • You can not claim trademark or service mark rights over the music within an end product
