Your company, association or public service can use background music on its website. However, you do need the permission of the authors, composers and producers of that music. Unisono grants a licence for this subject to certain conditions. This allows you to take care of the copyright and the neighbouring rights royalties quickly and easily.

Want to apply for a licence? 

You can immediately use MyUnisono, our handy tool that allows you to manage your licence online.

We grant a licence under the following cumulative conditions:

  • Background music limited to a duration of 15 minutes
  • Non-downloadable format
  • No web radio application
  • No advertising, promotional or animated spots (flash, video, etc.)

If you do not meet these conditions, please send an email to media-online@unisono.be.
