We want to keep things as simple as possible. We have two music licensing options:

The Standard License will cover most of your needs and allows you to use the music for a number of popular uses such as: Internet videos, Corporate videos and many more. For details, please check our license page.

The Extended licensing agreement has the added advantage of covering use for advertising on TV and in theatres,

This License allows a single project to use the music in perpetuity.

The license page on our website(?) has more details. You can also contact us if you have difficulty deciding which license corresponds best to your needs.

The license allows you to use the music for yourself, your clients and your employer, both in a personal and in a professional context. Selling the music by itself is not allowed as well as transferring, bartering, trading, sharing, leasing or giving it away to a third person or party. In the same way the license also can not be subleased. The music acquired from ApeTracks.com cannot be resold other than as an integral part of your finished end product. Adding instruments or vocals or in anyway rearranging the music does not allow you to market it as your own; for example you cannot sing on top of the music and then sell or distribute it as your own song.

The above also applies to music on our website, that we may offer free, and includes watermarked previews. For further information please check out the Limitations of Use section in our licensing agreement.

Please contact us if you are uncertain as to whether the use you want to make of our music falls within our Limitations of Use.
