Use of music in films, music videos, news reports, etc. (synchronisation)

When you use music together with images, a juxtaposition of sound and pictures occurs. This is called synchronisation. If, for example, you create a video clip with music that you publish on your website, or an online news outlet uses music in a video report, the rights must be cleared before the video is published.

NCB (Nordic Copyright Bureau) and the music publishers clear music use in non-commercial and commercial productions, respectively.

If you are using music that has been downloaded from the internet or obtained from a CD, you must – in addition to the NCB license – also have a permission from the record company/artist to use their recording. Contact them for further information.

If you have any questions about audio-visual productions, contact NCB direct:
