Rocket Songs Exclusive License Agreement

We want to make this part really easy for you, so in a nutshell, here's what you can do with the original songs and tracks from Rocket Songs. You can:


  • Record and promote your version of our songs through your own website, or Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube - basically share it any way you want.

  • Release and sell your version of our songs anywhere from iTunes to Amazon, your website, or a digital distribution platform of your choice - basically sell it any way you want.

Just follow the rules described below so you don’t tee-off the copyright owners.


With the purchase of a Rocket Songs Exclusive License, the song will become unavailable for licensing on RocketSongs.com for the term length you chose. No other member or visitor to RocketSongs.com will be able to download or purchase a license for the song until the Rocket Songs Exclusive License terminates.


Any member who purchases a Rocket Songs Exclusive License will have the first right to renew and extend the length of the exclusive period at the end of the initial term. The exclusive period takes effect immediately upon purchase of the Rocket Songs Exclusive License (Effective Date).


The Rocket Songs Exclusive License Agreement will not prevent someone else who may have already purchased a Standard, Expanded, or Master License for the song, prior to the Effective Date of your Rocket Songs Exclusive License purchase, from releasing or sharing their version of the song.
