The following excerpt is from our license agreement:

"While our License gives you the right to perform the Projects in public, it does not cover payment of royalties to performance rights organizations (PRO).

At Artlist, we don't charge any additional fees. When your work is aired in a broadcast or other public performance platform, PROs can choose to collect royalties. Most broadcasters have a blanket license for these cases so please contact them for more details if needed. Get cue sheet information directly from the site.


Crediting the artists or filmmakers

With an Artlist license, there is no need to credit the artists or filmmakers, but it is always appreciated!


Transfer of license, sublicense, and distribution

The standard license doesn't cover transfer, sublicensing, or distribution. If this is something that you need, reach out to our Enterprise team for a custom solution.


*It is important to note that the standard license found online covers the filmmaker's use of assets in audiovisual projects. If you are part of a company with over 100 employees, a broadcaster, or distributor, please contact our Enterprise team for a customized business solution.
