You’re an artist or Producer? Sell your music through Madbox
Music licensing is essentially the granting of permissions to individuals or organisations, enabling them to use music for certain purposes. These granted permissions are sold as licenses, generating ‘passive income’ for the owner(s) of the music.
All Madbox licenses are ‘sync’ licenses which relate specifically to the usage (or ‘synchronization’) of music within a media production, whether that be video, software or audio content. Our licenses are pre-cleared. This means that when an artist joins us, they agree that we can systematically issue licenses on their behalf for the agreed purposes, with no case-by-case consultation needed between us and them. For both customers and musicians, this provides a highly efficient and appealing system.
