What Is a Synchronization (Sync) License?

This is required when your music is paired with a visual work.

A synchronization license (also known as a sync license) is a license granted by the owner or composer of a particular work for permission to be used in an audio-visual work. The license allows the licensee or purchaser the right to use the music in a visual piece, such as a movie, video game, or commercial. Syncs have their own royalty stream.

Here at Songtrust, we do not take any synchronization rights, so you are free to procure these as you wish without our interference. We will forward and requests to you directly. If you would like help papering the deal, please reach out via our Support Form and we would be happy to do so for our standard 15% commission.
