Royalty-free is a trending word, yet its meaning often remains unclear.
Royalty-free music doesn't mean that the music is free but rather implies that the music is free of royalties.
All the Jamendo composers have stated being 100% independent artists, not affiliated to any Performance Rights Organization (PRO) such as BMI in the US, SGAE in Spain, GEMA in Germany, PRS in the UK, SACEM in France, etc. Since they do not manage the rights of our composers, such PROs should not be entitled to collect any additional revenues from you.
Royalty-Free music can thus be defined as a simple, cost-effective licensing solution allowing you to legally use musical works created by independent composers. Our licenses include both synchronization & broadcast rights.
