CD Baby artists and songwriters can opt-in for sync licensing through CDB Boost. Sync licensing gives music users the ability to license any of over 3 million songs opted-in to our sync service.
CD Baby works to help artists generate revenue by licensing their music for movies, TV shows, ads, and video games. We promote your music directly to music supervisors, advertising agencies and TV producers, and TV networks to get your music placed.
Keep in mind that CD Baby will negotiate all of the rates on your behalf to make sure your music is valued appropriately for the type of placement and license.
For placements, you keep 60% of the fees we collect on your behalf.
There are no territory restrictions with Sync Licensing; you are granting us the rights to license your music worldwide.
With our sync licensing service through CDB Boost, you retain ownership of all of your copyrights. However, you ARE granting non-exclusive rights for synchronization so that your music can be used for syncs in tv, advertising, video games, and film without your direct approval. A song that has been pre-approved is always more desirable in the eyes of music supervisors and production teams who are looking to license your music.
