LICENSING, TERMS & CONDITIONS
Overview of License Terms
After purchasing one of the Plans, you'll be granted a worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual license with an unlimited number of usages for all tracks contained in Tomas Herudek Music Library from the date of the purchase to the same date next year. After that period, you must renew the Plan (purchase another year of subscription) to maintain the permission for using the songs present in the library. If you choose not to renew your plan, you'll also lose the authorization to download any of the songs from the library. However, all the audio-visual works (AV works) you have created during your valid subscription, whether for yourself or for your clients, are perpetually cleared — meaning they are forever yours."
You can synchronize the music contained in the Tomas Herudek Music Library ("the music") with audiovisual media ("AV works") according to the scope of the purchased blanket license, i. e., purchased subscrtiption plan - Creator, Filmmaker or Unlimited (You can also view the overview of licenses and plans in a clear table here.):
Creator Plan - this plan/license grants permission to sync the music with your AV works released on all social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok etc., and all future social media platforms. This license allows you to monetize your video content on YouTube and all other social media platforms. You can also sync the music with podcasts, online streaming and wedding videos/slideshows. With this Plan you are NOT permitted to use the music in AV works created for third party clients.
Filmmaker Plan - this plan/license provides an extensive license, encompassing all the features of the Creator Plan and extending its reach with the following permissions: With the Filmmaker Plan, you have the authority to use the music in short and feature films, trailers and teasers, works destined for TV, TV shows and Broadcasting. This plan also includes a commercial license, enabling you to use the music in AV works created for third-party clients.
Unlimited Plan - this plan/license provides an extensive license, encompassing all the features of the Creator Plan and Filmmaker Plan and extending its reach with the permission to sync the music with audiobooks, games, apps and software. Additionally, the Unlimited Plan allows you to use the music in live performances. Whether it's a live event, theatrical production, or any performance art, you have the freedom to accompany it with the music.
Accounts and business information
In order to purchase a Plan, and receive the blanket license certificate, you must open an account on tomasherudek.com and on disco.ac - the service that provides the library and enables you to efficiently browse, filter, and download the music. In both cases, opening an account is fast and simple. Please enter the same login email in both cases to be correctly authorized. Also, enter your correct name or business name since those will appear on your license certificate.
Public Performance and Broadcast
You have the right to perform the music in public, but it does not cover payment of royalties to PRO (Performance Rights Organizations). That means if you or your customer uses the music in broadcast, the broadcaster must cover these royalties. The PRO that covers all the songs from tomasherudek.com is BMI (for the territories of USA and Canada) and OSA (Rest of the World). IPI number: 01093612660.
Editing the music
You can edit the song - the length and the sound to fit your AV work. You can also edit the order of individual parts of the song. Unless you contact me and we come to an agreement, you cannot create a song or remix with my music.
You can credit me, but it's not mandatory. I would very much appreciate it though. The proper way to do it is to copy this short text and add it in the description of your video:
Music by Tomas Herudek
Song: -- name of the song --
Forbidden usage of the music
Even though you can use the song as many times as you wish during your valid subscription, this privilege applies only to you or your company. The license is non-transferable — you cannot transfer the license to other parties. However, you can create an AV work for a client, and you can transfer that end product to your client. In this case, the license is then transferred to your client, but only in the form of a complete audiovisual work; the client cannot use the music alone in any future project.
Additionally, you are not permitted to re-distribute the music or claim ownership of it. With the 'tomasherudek.com' blanket license, you gain the right to use the music solely in your AV work. You cannot register my music in any store/platform or present it as your own work.
Unless you contact me and we come to an agreement, you cannot create a song or remix with my music.
