Non-Attribution License

This is a “non-attribution” license. This means that by purchasing this license, you don’t have to give credit for this song in your project.

You will receive a unique license code which is used in conjunction with the base license wording that is outlined below. You do not need to redeem this code anywhere, it’s just proof for both of us that you have a valid license (this is more secure than a generated PDF).

PLEASE NOTE: the license by itself does not come with any files (other than a link to the MP3) – it is just a license. You can download all the songs for free at https://www.silvermansound.com/free-music/ or you can purchase the wav files from the shop. This is to give people more flexibility in what they purchase.

Here are some limitations you agree to when you purchase this license:

  • You cannot claim my music as your own.
  • You cannot register my music in any store/platform (including Facebook Rights Manager Service, and YouTube Content ID or and similar service).
  • You cannot make a standalone track or remix with this license (you can totally do this with the Creative Commons license though).

Here’s the specific text of the License:
