What is Free For Broadcast music?
Those who meet our specific requirements and qualify for FFB, will effectively be entering into an agreement with The Music Jar and given full access to our entire catalogue of music tracks, with permission to synchronise any of them within your ‘broadcast’ (only) productions, free of any charge, no repeat fees, in perpetuity.
We will also actively contact those who qualify and offer our unique Free For Broadcast music licence, should they wish to take advantage of this.
For those who qualify for our unique FFB licence, each time you download and synchronise one of our tracks within a ‘broadcast’ production, you must validate your usage licence (free of charge) by registering the production title and giving as many details as you can at the time of checkout / download. We understand that these details may not be available at this point in time, so alternatively you must record the music usage on a cue sheet in the usual manner and supply this to both ‘The Music Jar’ and to the broadcasting company prior to the first air date.
