Hi guys,

A client asks me which type of license must be purchased for a webseries. 8 episodes in total, non-profit as it just goes out online and is free to view.

I do not know if he should buy 8 Regular license or a Extended license or only 1 Regular license.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hola Carlos, I think it would be 8 regular licenses. I think that’s the fairest option. Legally I’m not sure… But in my opinion there are 8 episodes and each license you sell is single use. Extended licenses are for when you make a new product for sale, which he really hasn’t so I don’t think it’s that.

I think 8 is the best option as it is affordable, and it helps your item as it shows 8 additional sales on it. Let’s hear what the others think as I’m sure they will chime in!

Series is defined as a sequence of related items in succession that share a common topic. If this is the case then according to AudioJungle licensing 1 regular license should do it.

Thanks mates, now I’m a little more confused :) Someone who has had the same experience or someone technical staff?

I also wanted to ask if you also upload to Youtube change the license type?

Thank you 1000!!!

Hey Allegro,

This is all very clear from the recent Licensing FAQ:

Q: Which license do I need for an end product that is freely accessible or freely distributed to users?

A: As long as the end users can freely access the end product, the regular license is fine. There can be more than one end-user (the person who uses the end product, such as the end consumer) as long as there is only one, unique end product.

Example: A flyer that you freely give out or a YouTube video

Q: Do I need a separate license each time I use an item in a series?

No. You only need to purchase the item once per series.

Q: What constitutes a series (eg TV series, webisodes, or a magazine with monthly editions)?

A: 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 extended license. A YouTube series that releases an episode every week (52 total) would only need to purchase a regular license once every year. A free magazine that releases an edition every other month would need to purchase a regular license once every year. A paid magazine would need to buy an extended license every year.

Thus, a single regular license is all that is needed for your client’s application.
