Our mission is simple

Help online content creators legally use the music they love.

What is Lickd?

Lickd is a digital platform helping YouTube content creators legally use the music they love. We provide commercial music from real labels for licensing in to YouTube videos without the fear of a Creator losing their ad revenue to a Copyright Claims. Our VOUCH software ensures that, if you license a song from Lickd, you will NOT get a claim on your content and can publish video with peace of mind.

Lickd /lɪkt/ verb. License [authorise the use of] a song for uploaded video content on the internet.
“Having Lickd the track for their latest video on YouTube, they could now avoid copyright infringement claims and keep the revenue from their content”

Why does Lickd exist?

The powers that be in online broadcasting and the music industry have had a real problem on their hands: there is still no solution to how user-generated content online uses music aside from the current culture of piracy and counter-claim. As more and more platforms begin to use video - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat - this problem is about to grow exponentially. Lickd is the solution to this problem.

We’ve come up with the solution:

Lickd allows creators of professional and semi-professional online content to legally license commercial music whilst also paying the music industry fairly for that right. The solution has been staring us in the face all along: build a professional relationship between online creators and the music industry directly.

The question now is:

Can the music industry change the way it relates with a new generation that produces and consumes media in a revolutionary way? And can this be done to the benefit of both creators and the music industry? Our team at Lickd absolutely knows it can - we’re so confident about it we’ve built the technology to start right away!

Our expert team of music industry professionals, technologists and creatives are focused on building the Lickd platform.
