Licensing mainstream music for your videos just became possible

For too long the Golden Rule for content creators has been that copyrighted music is a hard no if you’re monetizing videos. But that sucks, right? So, we spun up the tech and signed licensing deals with all the big labels to change all that. It’s a pretty sweet deal – you get to use tracks from major artists in your videos, the artists get their dues, you cash in on ad revenue and we squash any copyright claims that may rear their ugly little heads. 🏆 Literally everyone wins 🏆

We've partnered with the biggest record labels

So it’s royalty-free music?

Sure, for you, yeah! In reality, you just buy a license and Lickd pays artists their royalties so you don’t have to. You get to use tracks from famous artists without breaking the bank or incurring ongoing costs. That’s right – unlimited use of stock music across all your socials as well as mainstream song licenses for each video.

We take a fire extinguisher to your burning questions.

Forever! The majority of our licenses are granted in perpetuity so there’s no danger of your video ever being taken down. (Yay!)

Absolutely, yes! Lickd is the first commercial music licensing platform that allows you to license great music AND avoid copyright claims from YouTube.

We’ve built software that interacts with YouTube’s Content ID and ensures your video doesn’t get a claim once you’ve licensed a track from us and used it in your video.

We store your channel ID when you sign in and match that to any track you license from us so it’s all handled by us behind the scenes.

First of all, you’ll need to have a YouTube channel in order to sign up and get a license from us. This is because all pricing is based on your YouTube channel numbers.

Once you’ve bought your license, you can use it across multiple social platforms supported by Lickd.

These are:

  • YouTube
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Twitch
  • TikTok
  • Snapchat
  • Vimeo
  • LinkedIn

Please Note: not all tracks can be licensed for use on all platforms. For example, a song may be allowed on YouTube and Facebook, but not on Twitter. 

Make sure to read the ‘Allowed Platforms’ section of your EULA (End User License Agreement) to ensure it covers your platform. This can be found once you’ve added a track to your basket (before purchase) by clicking the ‘View License’ button.

If you’d like to use a video on another platform, app or service, just make sure it’s hosted on one of the above platforms we cover (e.g. YouTube) and embed it from there. You cannot upload the video natively to an unsupported platform with one of our licenses.
