Master Use License Agreement Basics

When you want to give someone else the right to use a musical recording, a Master Use License Agreement is a great way to make sure it's done the right way. Whether the music is used in film, TV, online, or in another way, this music licensing agreement covers all the basics and sets clear expectations between the musician and the producer.

Use the Master Use License Agreement document if:

  • You are an owner of a sound recording or a piece of music (typically a record company) and would like to license the use of the recording to another party for use in a film, television production or soundtrack album.

A Master Use License Agreement is made between the owner of a sound recording or piece of music and the producer of a film or other creative work. A Master Use License is used between the owner of a sound recording or piece of music and the producer of a film or other creative work. However, several parties (including record companies) often share ownership of a piece of music or sound recording, so all parties have to approve the use of the music or master recordings they jointly own. This music license agreement covers the scope of how the music will be used, including the right to play or perform the music publicly. Compensation, screen credit and representations and warranties by the musician and producer are other terms included in the Master Use License Agreement.
