What Is an Internal Use License?

Song usages that stay inside a single office.

An internal use license is uncommon - it’s a specific type of song usage, in which the material is exclusively created for and viewed by members within a single organization. This means that every person viewing the project (and hearing the song as used) is employed by the same company or organization. Some examples include a song licensed by a specific company to soundtrack a training video, series of internal educational materials, or an internal meeting.


If any non-employees are present, the project is considered external use.
