May I show an Image Film at a fair with a standard license and at the same time present it on its own website?

Yes. The standard license is tied to the use. Under use we differentiate – except for the limit of 1000 copies – the type of use, and not volume. That means that if the music is inserted in a Image Film, it does not matter whether the film is shown at a fair or streamed on the Internet, be it on its own website or that of a third party such as YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook.

It does make a difference, though, if the film is inserted with commercial purposes. In this context commercial means “to promote the sales of a product (good or service).” The corporate film does not usually have the sales of a product in mind, but rather serves to improve the image of the company. The fact that in this context of the film the company products can be shown is self-evident. But the film’s purpose is not commercial use, as for example, a TV spot. Image spots are an exception. An image spot is an Image Film in the style of a commercial spot, which serves primarily to strengthen a brand. The focus of an image spot is not the company itself; rather the brand is positively emotionally charged through the film/spot. The company’s products may be advertised better through the upload, since the brand already conveys a positive image.

What is the difference between an online advertising license and a standard license?

The online advertising licensediffers from the standard license in the range of use it has. It is applicable to online commercial spots on its own website. The range of use is limited to one language version and to one version of the spot. The license is for a year. The online advertising license is also valid for the so called point of sale use within the context of sales promotion measures. For example, you can stream the spot from the website via LAN connection. Should you intend to disseminate the video via video platforms (such as Youtube and Vimeo), you must extend the online advertising license accordingly. Since there are many possibilities of use that differ greatly in type and range, we offer license extensions depending on range of use. For this purpose, please send us an e-mail or simply call us at: +49 (0)6132 43 088 30.

What means “1000 physical units” in the standard-license?

If you like to license music from the Proud Music Library e.g. for a corporate video, which is used for trade fairs or the company’s website and offered to be downloaded, the standard-license will cover this kind of use. Regardless of how often the video is downloaded or replayed. The limitation of 1000 units is just refering to physical units such as DVDs, CDs or memory sticks.

Product videos at e.g. Amazon.com

If you wish to use music from our Proud Music Library for a product video or a presentation video on Amazon or other WEBshops, the appropriate license will be our standard-license.  You will get a worldwide royalty free music license with no temporary limitation. If you license tracks marked as completely royalty free music, you do not have to pay any fee to a collecting society.
