To be considered a series, all things in the series (eg episode, edition) must be connected, and be released within 1 year of the first installment. There is also a maximum of 52 episodes or editions within the series.

Example: A 12 episode TV series that starts in December and ends in July would only require a single license. A YouTube series that releases an episode every week (52 total) would only need to purchase a license once every year. A magazine that releases an edition every other month would need to purchase a license once every year.

I am doing an ad campaign with several variations on the same ad. Do I need a new license for each ad variation?

You should purchase 1 license for each substantially different ad.

Example: If you have 3 identical ads with just minor text changes, just one license is fine. If you use a single template to create ads for 3 different products/services, you should purchase 3 separate licenses.

My end product will be distributed via multiple mediums. Do I need one license for each medium?

No. As long as it’s all the same end product, you can distribute it via different mediums without having to purchase new licenses.

Example: With a single license, you could play your commercial online and on TV.

What is the difference between limitations on copies, downloads, audience size, views and impressions?

Copies and downloads apply when an end product is distributed to an end user and they retain ownership of the end product in physical or digital form (e.g. a DVD, app, video game, or audiobook). The number of copies/downloads of the end product you are allowed to distribute may be limited depending on the Music License you purchased.

Audience size applies when an end product is for Broadcast use, be it traditional television or radio or online substitutions of these. The size of the audience you are allowed to broadcast to may be limited depending on the Music License you purchased.

Views and impressions apply to non-Broadcast end products displayed on the web, and are a measure of how many visitors have seen or played your end product. None of our licenses place any restrictions on page views or impressions.

Example: Your home video uses music licensed under the Music Standard License. You upload it to a user-generated video-sharing platform, and goes viral with over 1,000,000 views. Relax and enjoy the fame, you’re still covered by this license.

Do I need to pay a performing rights organization (P.R.O.) if my end product containing TimTaj music is publicly performed or broadcast?

For the vast majority of buyers and end uses, typically no, you shouldn’t need to worry about any additional performing rights fees.

All TimTaj music is registered with P.R.O. For all music, please be aware that different countries and P.R.O.s may have different rules and criteria, so if you are unsure whether your project and use is considered to be public performance, or whether you may be obligated to pay additional performing rights fees, you should contact your local P.R.O. for more information.

Why have I received a "matched third party content" copyright notice via YouTube about TimTaj music used on my YouTube video?

YouTube takes copyright infringement seriously, and its Content ID audio detection system will occasionally display a copyright notice on videos using licensed TimTaj music.

To clear this notice, you simply need to let YouTube know that you have licensed the music and have the rights to use it.
