SFX Licence Information
When you purchase a sound effects product from Sound Ideas or make use of our products in a networked environment, your use of our products is governed by the applicable End User License. What's the difference between our products and their End User Licenses? Here's a quick explanation:
Sound Effect Products:
All of Sound Ideas' Sound Effect products are sold on a royalty free buyout basis, and a lifetime synchronization license (as described in the Sound Ideas End User Agreement and the Hanna-Barbera & Turner Sound Effects End User License Agreement) is included with your purchase. Mechanical rights are not included in the purchase of this synchronization license - and therefore except as specifically identified in the Sound Ideas and Hanna-Barbera & Turner Sound Effects End User License Agreements, you are not authorized to copy our sound effects - they must be synchronized within your productions. Performing rights are not applicable to public broadcast or performance of sound effects.
Networked or Multi-User Environments:
Sound Ideas' products are sold with the understanding that you will synchronize selected sounds directly into your productions. Because computers are such an important tool in modern production houses, we specifically allow the copying or re-recording of our sounds to a single computer workstation that will not be networked or accessed by more than one end user at a time. However, the use of our sounds in a networked or multi-user environment (more than 5 workstations) is not authorized unless you have received permission directly from Sound Ideas. If you are considering copying or re-recording Sound Ideas' Products to a hard drive or other medium - or if you have already done so - please consult our Multi-User License Information Sheet or contact Beatbox Music for more information.
