Music license question

Hi there,

I am making 10 videos for my client, all are the same format, same intro and outro, one minute long, and products that are being presented are same kind only different models of the product. Each video for each product model. Is that a series?, client will be posting this videos cc every other day for 10 days. I have to purchase background music that will be same in all videos, how many licenses do I need. Is one enough?



Here you will find about license details

Hope Helped!

Hi, I saw all of those, but still not sure if the reviews I am making for client can be interpreted as video series in which case I can purchase only one licence for all 10 videos.


I’d say they qualify as a series, but just to make sure, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to contact support :slight_smile:

from license faq I have gotten that your video will be considered as a series in the following consideration:

In addition to a series, allowed variations of an end product that are still considered a single application include:

  • Translations - the same end product simply translated into a different language (e.g. alternate text or alternate voiceover)
  • Cut-downs - a shortened version of an end product where no new content has been added (e.g. a 15 second “teaser” version of a film trailer)
  • Tag changes - minor revisions to text or content (e.g. changing “Coming Soon” to “Now Showing”).

Also please note:
To be considered a series, all things in the series (eg episode, edition) must be connected, and be released within 1 year of the first installment. There is also a maximum of 52 episodes or editions within the series.

If you have still doubt then please open Help ticket and let them know. Envato Customer support team will be happy to assist you.


Thanks for all the help, I also thought that its a series, but will write to support just to be sure. I need straight and clear answer :slight_smile: on this one,


It could indeed pass as a series… as long as you make it a series. The requirements are loose enough, and your project seems to fit in, so it’s all about the intention. If you think of it as a series, then it’s fine.

(This part is not specifically aimed at you @frane2107980, sorry for the digression): Which begs the question: who was the series policy tailored for? Why do authors, who for the most part can no longer live off their earnings, should accommodate companies that sell several products. Do their customers also pay for one item and get them all, because they’re part of a series? Doesn’t seem fair to me.
