Terms & Conditions
Unauthorised synchronisation use, copying, retail, hiring, lending, broadcast and public performance of our music is prohibited.
The copyright and master rights in the music on this website are owned by Goods & Cargo, Inc. If you breach any of our terms and conditions, we reserve the right to take action.
All our licences are designed to be straightforward and concise. The following terms and conditions are designed to explain what you can and can't do with our music.
If you are unsure about any aspect of music use please contact us.
Downloading your music/distribution policy
If you wish to download music you must select a usage type from the options available. After purchasing your tracks, a link with your licensed track(s) will be emailed to you automatically.
Reporting your music use
As with any music used in productions for broadcast or cinema, you’ll need to fill in a music cue sheet. Please send a copy of the cue sheet to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to your production
The download rate covers use of the track in only one production. If you want to use the same track in two different productions you will need to download the track twice. Any changes to your original production, trailers etc, will classify as a ‘new’ production.
If you need to use several tracks in your production(s), or if you need lots of versions of tracks, a blanket licence will usually work out cheaper. Our rate card lists all available options for blanket licences, please contact us to find out more.
Using our music in other ways
Our standard licences are issued for synchronising our music with your pictures (audio-visual use). Music-only productions (such as audio-only CDs) require a special licence agreement, without which, music may not be re-recorded, duplicated or re-sold. Please contact us for details.
Public performance of your production
Goods & Cargo is a member of the Performing Right Organization (PRO) in Canada and equivalent overseas societies. This means that every public performance (broadcast, website use, live events etc) of your production needs to be covered by a public performance licence. It is usually the responsibility of the entity performing the music - broadcaster, live music venue or website owner (not usually the production company) – to clear this licence with the local performing rights society.
The societies then divide up this licence fee income amongst composers and publishers whose music has been used. This is why it is important for production companies to fill in cue sheets so the broadcaster can give the local performing rights society the necessary information about the music it has used.
Goods & Cargo owns all of its sound recordings.

To request a refund, please contact us and we will be happy to help. Refunds will be issued to the card used at the time of purchase and will processed within 15 working days.
