Music Use Permissions & Restrictions

Once you have bought and downloaded music from our website, you can burn it to a CD, transfer it to any of your digital devices – such as a phone, tablet, Mp3 player/iPod – or any other medium you like.

We do not place any restriction on how you share our music between your personal devices and, should you lose your download at any time in the future, we will replace it free of charge.

If you are a yoga or meditation teacher, hypnotist, Reiki therapist, YouTube broadcaster or work in another field where you'd like to use royalty free meditation music as an accompaniment to your business, please be aware of the following restrictions:

1. Can I use your music in my yoga/meditation class?

Yes. Unlike other music download stores we do not put a restriction on public performance in this way.

2. Can I create copies of the music to sell or give away to my class members?

No. If your class members are interested in buying the music they hear they will have to purchase their own copy.

3. Can I record my voice over your music and use it as a guided meditation/hypnosis track to play/sell to my clients?

No. Because you would be changing the music from its original form, you would effectively be creating a new composition. This would require you to license the music from us under a specific agreement. Unfortunately this is something we do not offer at this time.

there are plenty of royalty-free meditation music libraries you can look up that offer this service. However, the music is generally quite expensive and will also have specific restrictions depending on the type of license you require.

4. Can I play your music in my spa/massage/other shop?

Yes. Unlike standard music, which requires you to have a license from a music licensing agency, you can play our music for as long as you like without having to pay a cent more.

5. Can I upload your music to my YouTube channel?

No. If we let you do this, millions of people could listen to our music for free and we'd never make a dime. Some naughty people would also copy (rip) the music from the video using special software.

Sure, some companies do upload their music to YouTube, but this is a business model whereby they make money from the ads shown over their videos. Many also sell their music from an online store.

5. Can I share the download(s) I purchased with my family and close friends?

Yes. We have a pretty lenient share policy, in that we have no problem with you sharing the music with your immediate family and one or two friends. However, outside of your immediate circle or family and close friends, we would ask that you encourage people to buy our music if they like it.

Having worked in music licensing for many years, I understand how the digital music landscape has changed the way music is consumed and shared, but at the same time we must appreciate that to enjoy wonderful music we must ensure the creators are paid for their artistry.
