CAN A BRAND USE LICENSED MUSIC ON TWITCH?

Licensed music provides brands with the rights and permissions necessary to use music while ensuring compliance with copyright regulations.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MUSIC IS ALLOWED ON TWITCH?
To know if music is allowed on Twitch, you should check if you have the appropriate licenses or permissions for the music you want to use. Using licensed music from platforms like UnitedMasters ensures that you have obtained the necessary rights to use the music legally on Twitch. It's important to review the terms and conditions associated with the music license to understand the scope of usage allowed.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST A STREAMER TO LICENSE MUSIC FOR TWITCH?
The cost of licensing music for a video may vary based on the duration of the music usage, the intended audience size, and the specific rights required. At UnitedMasters, we offer flexible pricing options tailored to meet the needs and budgets of brands and content creators to make music licensing accessible and affordable.
WHAT KIND OF LICENSE IS REQUIRED FOR STREAMERS TO INCLUDE MUSIC IN TWITCH STREAMS?
Brands typically require a synchronization license (sync license) to incorporate music into their videos legally. A sync license grants the rights to sync the music with visual content. UnitedMasters provides sync licenses for our extensive library of over 1.5M+ independent artists, allowing brands to find and obtain the necessary permissions to use music in their videos in a fully compliant manner.
DO I NEED PERMISSION TO USE MUSIC IN MY TWITCH STREAMS?
Yes, as a brand or content creator, you need permission to use music in your video. Music is protected by copyright, and using it without proper licensing or permission can lead to copyright infringement. UnitedMasters simplifies the process by offering pre-cleared sync licenses, so you can use music in your videos legally.
CAN I USE COPYRIGHTED MUSIC IN MY TWITCH STREAM IF I GIVE CREDIT?
While it may be a common courtesy, giving credit alone isn't sufficient to use copyrighted music legally in your brand's video. Copyright law grants exclusive rights to the copyright owner, and obtaining proper licensing or permissions is always best, regardless of whether credit is given or not. UnitedMasters provides a library of pre-cleared music so you never have to worry about copyright infringement.
CAN I STILL USE THE MUSIC I'VE LICENSED AFTER I STOP MY SUBSCRIPTION?
If you choose to cancel your UnitedMasters subscription, you can still use the music you've licensed from the library in videos that were created during the term of your subscription. Any content published during the subscription period may remain active, and you retain the rights to use the licensed tracks in perpetuity for those specific videos.
However, it's important to note that if you opt out of the subscription, you will no longer be able to run ads with the licensed music. The rights for running ads with the content are restricted to the duration of your subscription. For organic posts and archival purposes, you can keep the licensed music up indefinitely.
HOW LONG IS MY SYNC LICENSE WITH UNITEDMASTERS VALID FOR?
The duration of your sync license depends on the specific licensing agreement you choose. UnitedMasters offers various licensing options, including both short-term and long-term licenses, allowing you to select the duration that best suits your brand's need.
