APPLY FOR A LICENCE

Once you have selected the right licence for your production you can apply to MCPS for a licence. You only need to complete one application per production regardless of how many tracks you use.

You must include all track details (track title, composer names and publisher) as well as the track durations for each individual cue. This will ensure each composer receives their correct royalty. This information accompanies every Lucid Production Music download.

The performing rights in our tracks are licensed by the PRS. These licences are normally the responsibility of the broadcaster.

FAQS

WHO NEEDS TO APPLY
FOR AN MCPS LICENCE?

If you are planning on exploiting or distributing any of our music, you require a licence to do this.

If you are unsure about the right licence or you can’t find a rate that fits your production, please contact the MCPS licensing team on +44 (0)20 3741 3888 or email applications@prsformusic.com

DO I NEED A LICENCE
TO TRY THE MUSIC?

No. You can download unwatermarked tracks at high resolution for rough cuts and edits. We offer secure, private sharing within your team, and have methods that enable you to publicly share playlists with your clients. But you will need to register for an account with us in order to have access to download material.

 

WHY SHOULD I USE
PRODUCTION MUSIC?

With a vast number of tracks in many genres and moods, in multiple versions and immediately available, production music (or library music) offers a time-saving and cost-effective way of obtaining high-quality music to enhance your audio-visual production.

However, if you’re looking for something extra-specific that you can’t find here, we offer custom scoring services too. 

Go to Bespoke Services to learn more.

 

DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A TRACK
AS WELL AS A LICENCE?

No. Once you have chosen the track and are happy you have selected the right licence for your production, you are all done.

When purchasing the licence you must include all track details (title, composer and publisher) as well as track duration. It is important that you licence your track accurately, so that our composers receive the royalties due when it is broadcast.
