Licensing music is easy with KLANGIDEE and provides legal certainty. There are two different ways of licensing:
1. USE OF MUSIC IN OWN AND COMMISSIONED PRODUCTIONS OF RADIO AND TELEVISION STATIONS WITH GEMA FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT (OR A CORRESPONDING FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT WITH A COLLECTING SOCIETY IN THE RESPECTIVE COUNTRY)
All you have to do in this case is to submit a music statement about the music used in your project to GEMA or the respective collecting society. There are no license fees for you. Basis are the contracts concluded between the broadcasters and the GEMA or the respective collecting society as well as the GVL or the respective neighboring rights society.
Such music statement contains the following information (if you use the cue sheet function in our download section, all required information will be included already):
Name of the work
Publisher or Label
KLANGIDEE or EDITION KLANGIDEE
15127 KLANGIDEE or 91332 EDITION KLANGIDEE
I.e. KI 001
I.e. Below the Surface
Duration of music use
I.e. 100 seconds or 01 min and 40 sec
2. MUSIC USAGE IN COMMERCIALS, MOVIES, DVDS, IMAGE FILMS, TRAILERS, GAMES AND OTHER MEDIA AS WELL AS ON WEBSITES, YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, GAMES AND OTHER PLATFORMS
In these cases, please complete a license application downloaded from the linkbelow as accurately as possible. If necessary, we will contact you to clarify any open question. KLANGIDEE will then send you a license offer in the form of an invoice, which simultaneously represents your license agreement. Upon payment of the invoice amount, the license is considered granted. All licenses issued by KLANGIDEE are perpetual.
After licensing by KLANGIDEE, a music statement (see above) for GEMA or the respective collecting society is still necessary. Depending on the type of use, the GEMA tariff applies. We gladly take care of the music statement on your behalf upon your request. You can also find tariff information here: https://www.gema.de/musiknutzer/tarife-formulare/
