What does 'request to license' mean?
You've found a tune that makes your heart skip a beat on SoundCloud. Now, how do you go about getting permission to use it?
'Request to license' is a way for you to get a synchronization license to the track you'd like to use through Getty Images Music.
It's fairly simple: for each track you want to use, you'll pay a licensing fee -- which gives you the rights to use a track based on the licensing model and the specific rights you are purchasing.
When you submit a request to license, we'll do the following:
- Review the track to determine if the song can be licensed
- Contact the owner of the track
- Handle all the details -- like releases and pricing
How long do I have to wait?
Time varies between a few days and a few months. Can't wait? To find tracks available for immediate licensing, search now.
