Friends, I’m a little late to the party, as some people have beat me to this milestone. I’ve sold plenty of other “new” licenses but JUST sold my first “MUSIC BROADCAST & FILM” license – the new top tier! :bigsmile: I’m quite overjoyed. Thank you, Envato!
I also had one of those a few days ago,really nice.Imagine going with your girlfriend/wife to watch a movie and hearing your music in some new Hollywood movie :D 12 sales atm,not bad.

My favorite part is that it is a song that features my vocals. Holy cow, I’m hope my poor singing voice is in a Hollywood movie. :bigwink:

I got it too, Flossie. I didn’t respond either. I think it’s just someone wanting some free templates and if he/she didn’t officially get it through Envato then maybe they can’t be as easily tracked as having it and offering it elsewhere, is my guess. Don’t even bother replying to those next time. No worries. I think you’ll be fine. ;)

After reading what Matt said, I think it might be wise not to offer our songs as Free file of the month or in events like the Gift of Giving Advent Calendar. I already had my doubts, because users don’t have license, but after this I clearly not going to risk.

This shouldn’t matter because they are still getting a license with their free download that they can provide to Adrev, etc. The download is “free” because they are not paying for it, not for “free usage.” Right?

The old Earnings page shared with us our referral numbers as well as clickthrough count. Am I missing where that was moved or can that please make a return any time soon? That was valuable information. Thank you.

Its kind of like a store clerk ringing the door bell on a house and asking for the receipt for the food that’s on the dinner table.

This is a fair analogy I think, Jeff. It’s really why I’ve been reluctant to jump in. Matt, you have been using adrev for 3 years? Which puts you about the time you started on AudioJungle. I don’t know where else you have sold but you’ve had good success here and this Adrev has served you well because you have been the store clerk retaining the receipt immediately after a sale from your very first sale.

Basically, people like Jeff and I are pushing back a little out of fear. Why would we want to upset buyers by asking for a receipt 3 years after a purchase? It feels a little irresponsible on our part that we didn’t jump in as early as you did, and they have to find their license for us because of … us? But then, better 3 years back than 15 years back, right? Might as well start now than even further down the line?


But I guess if it hasn’t been a problem like you said Matt then maybe the pros out weigh the one con. I know I would be annoyed though. What if I made a video and purchased sfx/music files from 5 different locations and right when I uploaded the video I have to fill out 5 forms? It would be a pain in @$$. I would be like “get your crap off my video!”

Yes, I’m curious about this too. It sounds like you haven’t had many issues, Matt? I suppose if enough composes start using these services, it’ll become an expected practice. It’s just, like you said Matt, change… and it’s scary.

Alas, I’m still waiting for a low-selling song I uploaded to Adrev a couple months ago to start supplying data to see how it works. :bigwink:

Edit: Matt, I see you were writing a response as I was and you answered some things. Thanks. Good stuff to keep discussing, though. Thanks for sharing your experience.
