1. Are sounds and music on Soundsnap royalty-free?

Yes, absolutely. You can use them in any commercial or non-commercial application (movies, music, theater, video games, etc). However, you cannot sell CDs with these sounds or re-sell them online as they are, but only as a part of your music, film, website, installation etc. You can read the full license here.

2. Can I use these sounds/music in a commercial project?

Yes. Any commercial use in film, TV, radio, web, games, etc. is clearly permitted under our license. The only use that is not allowed is the commercial distribution (re-selling) of the sounds "as they are" on CDs, websites, etc.

3. Do I need to credit Soundsnap when I use the sounds in my project?

No! Crediting us or the sound creator is not necessary but if you want to do it voluntarily, thats always appreciated ;)

4. Can I copy sounds/music from Soundsnap onto a CD or my website and re-sell them?

Absolutely not. That's against our Terms of Use and a violation of international copyright law.

5. How can I be certain that the sounds/music on Soundsnap are legal?

Our sounds and music have been licensed from reputable contributors with extensive industry credits. After submission, our team listens to each sound making sure they don't infringe anyone's copyright. Finally, because of the large volume of traffic on the website, it would be really hard to distribute a sound illegally. Everything is checked daily by members of the community that can inform us of any copyright infringement.

6. Is it OK if I use a script or bot to help me download sounds?

No. It is strictly prohibited to use any kind of robot, spider, script, downloader, reader, or any kind of software meant to stream or download tracks. There are no exceptions to this rule as it will slow down legitimate users and could create risks for our partners. Any violation of this rule will be dealt with a ban from the site without refund and is often followed by serious legal action.
