So, what once cost $90 can now be purchased for $18? With the previous licensing system commercial end products required an extended license, but now regular license is enough: “Use in one end product, free or commercial”. 18 dollars license is okay for student projects, personal videos, etc, but allowing commercial use for such a symbolic price is wrong.
From my experience, when TuneSat gives you all those shows and channels where your music allegedly appears, it merely means that your music was used in a commercial that was aired there. Since neither cable TV nor viewers pay for commercials, no extended license is required.
Glad to see this timid little step in the right direction, now we’re getting reasonable. Hope that a lot of amendments are still ahead. BTW, Music Broadcast & Film License should consist of four figures.
Designer’s work in a nutshell:
you only need a regular license for Google adsense as you are not selling anything directly.
This is unreasonable. What exactly is a principal difference between monetization of videos and selling a product? Both are profit-oriented activities directed to commercial advantage and monetary gain. So why one requires a regular and another extended license? It should be revised.
A great opener for your video, 100% Chinese: http://audiojungle.net/item/chinese-riff-with-gong/2903115
