Licensing: Read This First!
Quick info on music licensing:
Licensing for any music (T Carter Music or your favorite artist) must be acquired prior to using it in a video slideshow for personal or professional use. This is a copyright law. Most videographers know this and adhere to the guidelines by purchasing annual licensing rights for their business or by using "stock" music purchased at a discounted rate.
Why do I need a license?
Any music purchased in mp3 format or CD format entitles the purchaser to "listen" to the music. Copying it to share or using it in other media (video/slideshow) is not a permitted practice without the copyright holders consent (artist, label, or publisher).
This is why songs uploaded to Facebook or YouTube ask if you have "permission to use the song" or they notify you of a copyright violation.
What we offer:
T Carter Music offers two licensing packages. One for personal use and one for professional use.
Personal Use per song allows the buyer to make videos/slideshows to share with family and friends ($5.99 per song). This license also allows the buyer to share on social media such as YouTube and Facebook.
Professional Use is for videographers that charge for their service. This is 1 year unlimited use license per song and the fee is $19.99. The client does not need to purchase the personal license since the videographer has already been granted permission.
Both discount packages below include license rights for each of our wedding songs. No hassle format, huge money saver.

- Professional Videographer option: $19.99 unlimited use for 1 year (Mp3 song download included). This license gives professionals full rights to use our music as many times as they need for clients for up to a full year. If you are a professional videographer, photographer, or have other interests for our music, this is the license for you.
Legally, it's a copyright violation for anyone to use ANY artists work in this manner (videos, editing, presentations, slideshows, commercials, etc...) without consent from the artist or label and compensation for the usage upgrade. Even if it's just a personal or "home" video. This license protects both parties. That is why we offer two simple and inexpensive licensing agreements to accommodate the one-time user as well as professional videographers who choose to use our music for their personal business.
