Good Day to all,

I have a question, for which I was unable to find the answer on the forums, and I’m hoping I can get some clarification on the same.

We are going to use a music pack on about 10 short videos that are a part of a singular project for our client that they are going to show on TV. Am I correct in thinking that I will need to purchase an extended license for the music pack we choose?

Also, our client would like to have some proof of purchase for the music, and i’m unsure what sort of paperwork I should give to them. The license comes in our name when we purchase anything on the envato network as it is our account. I’m not sure what to give to the client as proof that we have bought the music pack specifically for their project.

I do hope I can get some clarity on this.

I thank you all for taking the time to read this.

About the licensing I think extended license should do the job, but I’m not sure about the paperwork. Maybe somebody from the staff should clarify this…

Hi
I’m not sure what license you need for this either, but to be sure you could open a ticket here: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Live/Tickets/Submit and choose “Copyright” but no sub-category. Too bad it usually takes some days until they answer. Maybe that helps a Little bit?

=) Well you should also ask the client to be specific about the form of the proof. But I’m guessing they just simply told it like that …. “we need proof” .

NenadSimic, you are right, :) that is exactly what they said! We have sent them an email, inquiring if we can just add a line in the contract that states that we’ll be sourcing music for them and how they can use it. That would be the easiest form of proof i think. I’m also waiting for a reply from the envato staff. May be they can shed some light into this matter.

Hello again,

Sorry to bump this topic, but we’re still waiting for a reply from the envato staff. I had opened a ticket 7 days ago, but no luck there either. I have even flagged this thread for a staff reply. I do hope we can get some clarity on the matter as we are still waiting to give the client an answer.

Thank you.

Hi,

My understanding is that you’ll need an extended licence as it’s for broadcast on TV. The proof of purchase will be the receipt you are sent by Envato and it would be nice to credit the authour of the songs if you’re client (and yourself) are happy to do so. If you need more than that, ask the authour to draft something together for you confirming purchase.

I wouldn’t wait on a staff response, they can take a while, especially around Christmas when things are busy.

Hope that helps,

Taco

Hope this helps.

In legal “terms”, buying an extended licence, you have bought the right to use the item you’ve purchased in a work you’re doing for reselling to a client. When you download the extended licence certificate (maybe in .txt) you can add a marginal note attesting you have the proper right to sell, in the work you’ve done, the musical item we are discussing about. Your client, in this way, will have the proof that you have used “legal” material for the work you are selling to him. In other words, let’s say a client want to buy form you a commercial spot, including music: well, he must have only YOUR certificate that music is for legal use, not the licence that Envato provides to you. Otherwise, he can buy the music by himself. Dunno if i was clear, couse of my english. Anyways, good luck for your future works!

Thank you for the replies tacoMusic and Cinquequarti. They were helpful. We will be making a separate sheet for our clients that will include the legalities of the music pack purchased and the intent of use. This can also double up as the proof of purchase.
