Royalty Free Music for Video, Live Feeds & Media Projects!


Want to use David's piano music for your live-stream, video, web site, film project, radio spot, wedding slide show or DVD project? For a small license fee (NONE in some cases), you can use David's music on most media projects royalty-free. For short YouTube video projects (under 10 minutes), you can use David's original music for free so long as you credit David in the video and in the video description. For live video feeds (for church services for example), you can also make use of David's music at no cost. BUT... please see below for all the details and ALSO read "What These Licenses Don't Cover" at the bottom of this page.

Please Note: The licenses below cover the use of David's original music. If you want to use songs that are not David's original music (such as his praise chorus or pop tune arrangements), be sure to ask David about it by sending him an email at dnevue@rainmusic.com. Songs that are not his original works that are not in public domain may require additional licensing via third parties.

Costs for Royalty-Free Licensing, by Type:

  1. YouTube Video Use: You can use David's music in your YouTube videos for FREE, so long as you credit David's music both in the video AND in the video description. A credit should appear in the video as follows...

    Note: You may receive an email from YouTube letting you know the music is copyrighted and notifying you of a claim on it. This is an automatic process YouTube does when it detects copyrighted music. No need to worry, it's fine, and you can use the music.

    Limit: This license assumes your video is ten minutes or less in length, so this does not include longer films. See below for longer films.

    Optional Donation: Although use for YouTube videos is free, you can still contribute a "thank you" donation to David. The "default" amount is $10.00. If you'd like to donate a larger amount, just increase the quantity in the cart. Thank you!

    Optional Donation: Although use for YouTube videos is free, you can still contribute a "thank you" donation to David here if you would like to support his music. The "default" amount is $10.00. If you'd like to donate a larger amount, just increase the quantity in the cart. Thank you!

    Optional Donation for License for Live-Stream Use



  3. Radio Spots: You can use one of David's songs in your radio spot for $10.00 per spot if the spot is a limited run in a single market (playing for a month in one region, for example). To license a song for unlimited use or duration, or for national radio use in all markets, Contact David at dnevue@rainmusic.com with the specifics for a quote.

    Limit: Due to radio broadcasting and webcasting regulations, this license only covers David's original songs. If you want to use a song that's not one of David's original tunes, contact David at dnevue@rainmusic.com for help with that. The license is valid for the purchaser only and is non-transferable.

  4. Web Site Use: For $10.00 per song (or see the FREE option mentioned below) you get unlimited use of the licensed song to stream on your web site provided that the song cannot be downloaded by your visitors (most people embed the music in some kind of secure player to prevent this). You must also provide an obvious song credit to David with a link back to this web site. Something to the effect of... "The piano music you're hearing is courtesy of David Nevue."

    Limit: You can license as many individual songs as you like at $10.00 each, but each song license is good for one web site. In other words, for two web sites using the same song, please purchase an additional license. The license is valid for the purchaser only and is non-transferable.

    The FREE Option: If you like, you can embed David's music into your web site direct from Spotify. You can simply Google how to do that (Google: "How to embed music from Spotify into my website)... and here's a video that shows an example. If you choose to go about it this way, you can use the music for FREE because David earns royalties from every stream of his music on Spotify. Thank you!

  5. Manufactured CD / DVD / Media / Slide Show Use: So long as yours is a small, independent project (less than 100 copies manufactured), you can use the song(s) you license freely using our standard license fee of $10.00 per song. A credit should appear in the project as follows...

What These Licenses Don't Cover:

  1. Mass Production or Distribution: Song(s) under this license agreement cannot be included in any commercial product that is mass produced (100 or more units) or distributed on the Internet via iTunes or other similar music services. A product release of more than 100 units requires a different license and any kind of mass distribution via the Internet requires special consideration. Contact David at dnevue@rainmusic.com with the specifics of your project for a quote.

  2. Commercial Theater or Television Releases: Use of David's music in a theatrical film or television or internet broadcast is not covered by these licenses. For use of David's music in commercial film or television, contact David at dnevue@rainmusic.com with the specifics for a quote.

  3. Adult Themes: Song(s) licensed cannot be included in projects that are inappropriate for children (containing excessive violence, profanity, sex or nudity). If your project contains any of these elements, but you still feel the music is appropriate, please contact David at dnevue@rainmusic.com with the specifics.

  4. Sharing, Trading, Downloading: Song(s) licensed cannot be redistributed, traded, made available for download, or otherwise transferred to anyone else. Nor can they be included in a project in that allows the end-customer to transfer the songs for personal use.

  5. Reselling: Songs cannot be resold as songs. In other words, you can't license David's music, create your own CD or DVD of those songs, and resell it as your own product. That is a blatant copyright violation.

Other stipulations:

  1. Note that when you license a song, you don't own it. You are licensing it for use. There is a legal difference in the copyright sense. If you purchase a CD, obviously you own the CD - but you don't own the copyright to the songs themselves.

  2. These licenses are for David's original songs only. Use of cover songs that were not originally written by David may require additional licensing from third parties.

  3. The songs you license cannot be the main content of your product (see Reselling above). This license is designed to allow you to use David's music simply to compliment your existing product or project.

  4. This license covers a single user only. It cannot be transferred to another party.
