May be this is exactly my case.

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.

I wrote to support, asking for assistance.


So what should i do now?

An extended license is needed. http://audiojungle.net/licenses/faq#license-broadcast-a

Contact support with all the details? After all, improper use of our music is AJ’s loss too.

Good Luck!

For me last 2 weeks of August turned this month from average to one of the best month in terms of earnings.

Thank you for clarifing some aspects. This is very very essential to have feeling that Envato listen to us. Thank you.

Hey everyone, thanks for the feedback and I’m glad to see most of your are excited about this – we are too!

On to your questions and thoughts…..

randomnoise suggests:
However – I think you should be more specific regarding the term ‘audience size’. In the license PDFs you already specify by using the term ‘intended total audience size’. That’s a lot better!

We looked at a few options for measuring audience size and thought that “intended” was the most practical for buyers at the time they make their purchase decision. I see what you mean about including “intended” in the summaries as well – we’ll keep that in mind. It’s a challenge to balance length and get all the detail across!

A few of you have questions and thoughts about whether buyers will choose the right license and especially how they might interpret the word “intended”. At Envato support, we field a lot of licensing questions from buyers who are essentially trying to do the right thing. We try to make the licenses and FAQs as clear as possible for these buyers. We also feel buyers making things for professional TV and radio broadcast will have a very good idea of intended audience size. We’ll be tracking what the buyer response to this is like.

MarkMarker asks:
Can authors restrict it only to ‘broadcast licence’? Or ‘film’?

No, all four music licenses will be available for AudioJungle music, as we want buyers to have a consistent experience.

sonic-boom asks:
Looks like a great change for authors… still no PRO-registered tracks?

Sorry to disappoint, but no PRO-registered tracks. We know this is high on many authors’ wishlist though!

Sound-Tricks asks:
Thank you! This is definitely an improvement in the right way. In addition it should be easier to choose the right license. Which license should be considered for free to play videogames on the net (facebook, Kongregate.com, Newgrounds, and many others…): Broadcast or copies of downloaded products?

For online games that are streamed (and not downloaded), the Music Standard License allows unlimited streaming of these products.

It’s getting towards bedtime here in Melbourne, so we’ll be back in about 12 hours or so to answer more questions.

Thanks again, keep the feedback coming….. :)

Great start! Thanks! However, I share the concerns of my friends. It would be better if ‘Music Standart License’ and ‘Music Mass Reproduction License’ doesn’t cover TV&Radio broadcast advertising. Otherwise we will continue losing money.

I hope too.


To clarify things – as far as i know, cable TV providers selling their programs to end clients (subscribers), so if something produced with our music for such channels, they must buy extended license. Am i right?

No, I don’t believe so. You pay for your internet connection too but that doesn’t mean YouTube requires an extended license. Extended license is required if you sell that specific product, like a game, directly to the buyer.

This will hopefully change with the new licensing terms though, so there’s a bright future!

However, biggest problem with new as well as old licenses is license violation. For examlpe, what if someone use it wrong? What methods we have in such case? Will Envato protect our music?
