Just found out that my track Funky Chase was used in a Netherland Mitsubishi ad and I didn’t even sell an extended license of that track. What a shame! Let’s roll out the new licensing scheme asap. I think we’ve had enough talking.

So does this mean theres going to be more direct payments to Authors? Rather than the once a month
Exactly, why does it matter if in the end it’s still the Envato who pays us on 15th each month

I always thought that buyers pay Envato for the sale and Envato pays us a certain percentage of that amount. Now that it’s actually buyers paying us directly, I think a “withdraw whenever you want” approach would better suit this model.

I’m not against multiple use license incorporated into one of the tiers. We don’t have any control on how many times a buyer uses our items so maybe a lot of people are already doing that.

This should work well with voiceover:

I wonder if it’s possible to upload a track to the regular music categories and at the same make it available in multitrack format in the source files section. So if the buyer only wants the full mix they will buy the normal track and if they want it in multitrack format they will be able to buy it in the source files section at a higher price.

I think this would help authors maximize their revenue and give the buyers the option to remix the track if they wish so.

Excellent news!

As far as I understand the new standard license covers any type of use (free, paid, or broadcast) on a limited ground. The second tier license only removes the copy limit of the standard one. I think it sounds like too much coverage for a $18 license and too less for a $90 one.

10.000 copies limit of the standard license would probably cover 95% of the buyers here as they are usually start up app and game developers. So this kind of makes the second tier license redundant. It would be ideal if the standard license didn’t cover any broadcast use at all, giving people a reason the buy the second tier license.

Moving on to the broadcast licenses. A lot of countries in Europe have less than or around 10 million population which makes their national TVs always fall under the 3rd tier license. They would never have to buy the 4th tier license for national broadcasts. Moreover, the standard license (1 million audience) would probably cover their smaller local TVs! I don’t know if you guys thought about that when you came up with these numbers.

My suggestion is something like this:

  • Tier 1: No broadcast.
  • Tier 2: Up to 1 million audience.
  • Tier 3: Up to 5 million audience.
  • Tier 4: Unlimited broadcast audience.

Great news, I might give this one a go although I’m not very experienced in orchestral music. But I would like all AJ authors to have a vote since participating authors may not be willing to vote for their competitors!

I’m 32. Now I understand what’s wrong with the music industry, nobody gets retired! Ehm, joking of course :)

I wonder why people bother with this when its possible to gain the top spot in the search just by using the tags like inspire, inspired, inspiring, inspiration, inspirational all at once!
