A single, simple license.

Most royalty-free music sites offer multiple tiers of licensing, depending on how you wish to use a track. Many offer time-limited licenses that must be renewed every year. At Backdrop, all of our tracks are available at a single price, which grants you the same rights for almost any use, for as long as you wish. See below for more details about our generous licensing terms.

The Backdrop License Agreement

All tracks purchased at Backdrop include a simple, standard license. This license is non-exclusive, non-transferable, and grants the licensee lifetime rights to use the track purchased for many purposes, including all of the following: websites, videos, films, documentaries, animations, presentations, slide-shows, music on hold, background music for bars, hotels, restaurants, shops, gyms, exhibitions, trade fairs, conferences, advertising on Internet and/or TV, video games, and software applications.

The tracks cannot, however, be redistributed or resold as-is, or with only minimal changes. They also cannot be packaged for use as free samples inside media content creation software such as a video production suite or audio DAW. Feel free to use tracks in a remix, but redistributing the tracks unaltered as your own is strictly prohibited.

Once a track is purchased, the licensee may use the track for multiple projects or events.

A license is applicable to one person or company only. Contract media consultants must not use a single purchased track in multiple projects for more than one client without purchasing an additional license for each client.

Free sample download tracks offered at Backdrop.audio are not permitted to be used in any published work without consent from the creators of the track. They are meant for mockup purposes only. If you wish to publish or rebroadcast any tracks, including the free samples, you are required to purchase a license to do so.

If you have any questions about this license agreement, feel free to contact us and we will answer your questions as soon as we can.
