Our material can be used on YouTube in the 2 following ways:
1. USE IN YouTube VIDEOS WITHOUT MONETIZATION
Our tracks have been released on audio albums, so YouTube safeguards our copyrights and sends you a notice if you use them in a monetized video.
Then again, you can also use them now in non-monetized videos (that is, when you don’t make any money from those videos) and purchase the commercial license whenever you feel you have enough traffic and want to monetize (or even not at all!).
That means that as long as you don’t monetize your video, you can use our music on YouTube free of charge.
Any notification you may get does not affect the status of your channel – that’s purely YouTube policy, it’s not related to Singing Bell.
2. USE IN YouTube MONETIZED VIDEOS
Our material has been released on albums, so YouTube automatically redirects generated income to the copyright holders.
In order to use our tracks on your channel and monetize your videos, you need a YouTube license.
Here are some details about our YouTube licenses:
- Singing Bell’s licenses for YouTube are non-transferable, you can make unlimited use of them in a specified channel, and each license is valid only for one channel.
- Our licenses do not expire. The material you purchase a license for can be used as long as your YouTube channel exists.
- As you can see above, the cost per track is
$12.00 (USD) for the instrumentals (karaoke) and
$15.00 (USD) for the vocal versions of nursery rhymes (actual songs).
- There is a discount for the purchase of any 5 tracks or more, depending on the total number of tracks. For example, we usually make a 15% discount for a number of tracks between 5 and 9. Let us know how many tracks you’d be interested in.
- There is a bigger discount (more than 30%) for the purchase of bundles (30 to 50 tracks) corresponding to our album releases.
- Certain versions have been licensed by third parties, so Singing Bell uses them under permission. These tracks are copyrighted by other copyright holders and can’t be licensed by us.
NOTE: Certain compositions have been licensed by third parties, so Singing Bell uses them under permission. These tracks are copyrighted and can’t be licensed by us.
