I composed a few musics for commercials eight years ago an registered in SGAE (The “spanish” ASCAP ). That musics was used only for a year and it doesn´t be used anywhere anymore.
¿Is it possible to upload to Audiojungle?
Thank you very much. Oscar.
Well, from what I understand, the music here HAS to be royalty free, so, probably not, but better ask an official opinion.

Thank you very much Mihai_Sorohan & lucafrancini.
I believe that if the music user does not declare the author of the work, SGAE (or ASCAP ) claims no right. so there should be no problem. It’s a shame that this music has been in a drawer for seven years and will be there forever…
On the other side. ¿How can a work be protect against plagiarism if not registered?
Any official response?
Thanks in advance. Oscar.
As AudioJungle is a royalty-free stock website, authors must not submit audio or music that is registered with any Performance Rights Organization (PRO) such as ASCAP , BMI, Harry Fox, SESAC or similar.
I can only say that if so it is a shame that hundreds (or thousands) of musics whose authors registered long time ago in the vain hope that they could generate copyrights or simply generate a small amount for a little time can not be used anymore.
Please let me know if this changes in the future.
I’m pretty sure you’re not allowed to put up registered work up here. Other LICENSING websites do allow it, but ROYALTY FREE ones don’t.
I know it feels like a shame, but the music industry has changed so much in so little time that there really wasn’t much anyone could do about it anyway. I mean a few years ago most of the authors here didn’t know about the world of royalty-free music and didn’t understand how lucrative it could be yet here we are now. Before record companies were the ones ruling the market but now the power has (fortunately) spread around. Think about it, if you were a TV producer, owner of a TV channel or radio station what would you prefer? Songs where no residuals or royalties need be paid at the end of the year or songs that do? End of the day some of the songs here on AudioJungle are so good they compete with the other stuff in the market so why not get the stuff from here?
There are other RF sites that do allow PRO registered racks, and quite rightly so. Scott mentioned that they are reviewing the situation here, which I hope comes to a happy conclusion of allowing it here. In the meantime, one option that I think i viable is to re-title your work. Many stock sites do this so that they can claim their PRO share of the ‘same’ track.
