Your use of Sound Ideas products is governed by our End User Licenses.
Sound Effect Products:
All of Sound Ideas' Sound Effect products are sold on a royalty free buyout basis, and a lifetime synchronization license (as described in the Sound Ideas End User Agreement and the Hanna-Barbera & Turner Sound Effects End User License Agreement) is included with your purchase. Mechanical rights are not included in the purchase of this synchronization license - and therefore except as specifically identified in the Sound Ideas and Hanna-Barbera & Turner Sound Effects End User License Agreements, you are not authorized to copy our sound effects - they must be synchronized within your productions.
Performing rights are not applicable to public broadcast or performance of sound effects.
Royalty Free Music Products:
All of Sound Ideas' Royalty Free Music products (like the Mix Music Library and the Mix Signature Collection), are sold on a royalty free buyout basis, and a lifetime synchronization license (as described in the Sound Ideas End User Agreement) is included with your purchase. Mechanical Rights (the right to copy the music), are not included with your purchase of our Royalty Free music except as specifically identified in the Sound Ideas End User License Agreement. Our Royalty Free music must be synchronized within your productions.
Performing Rights for public broadcast and/or performance music use are not included in the purchase of Sound Ideas' royalty free music products. You should therefore report your music use to your local Performing Rights Society, so that Performing Rights revenue can be paid to the music's composer(s) and publisher(s). More details are provided on this Web site's FAQ page, and a blank Cue Sheet is available for your use.
Networked or Multi-User Environments:
Sound Ideas specifically allows you to copy or re-record of our sounds to a single computer workstation that will not be networked or accessed by more than 5 end users at a time. However, the use of our sounds in a networked or multi-user environment (more than 5 workstations) is not authorized unless you have received permission directly from Sound Ideas. If you are considering copying or re-recording Sound Ideas' Products to a hard drive or other medium - or if you have already done so - please consult our Multi User Licensing page or contact us for more information.
Custom licenses that permit use of our products in an unsynchronized format for a variety of different products are available. These additional uses that are NOT allowed under Sound Ideas End User License Agreement include the use of our sounds:
as samples in software packages
in retail toys
in electronic sampling equipment or program chips
as telephone ring tones
in iPhone, Android or other smart device Apps
If you are working on a project that would benefit from the inclusion of unsynchronized sound effect or music tracks, please contact us for additional licensing details.
