The Hear & Found website provides the user (“you” or “user”) with licensing options for the use of certain rights in and to musical compositions and sound recordings (“Tracks”) from a curated catalog of musicians, bands, artists, and composers. In addition, we also offer you licensing for the use of certain rights in and to sound effects (“Sounds”) from a catalog of sound effects.

Hear & Found Music and Sound Library
All of our licenses are intended to be simple and easy. The Terms and Conditions below are designed to clarify what you can and cannot do with our Tracks, Sounds, and Website. Unauthorized use of our music (Tracks) and sound effects (Sounds) for synchronization, duplication, selling, hiring, lending, broadcast, and public performance is forbidden.
Hear & Found Co., Ltd. owns the copyright and master rights to the music and sound recordings on this website. We have the right to take action if you violate any of our Terms and Conditions.

Downloading and Distributing Policy
If you wish to download music or sound effects from our website, you must first sign up or log in before choosing a usage type from the list. After you purchase your tracks, your license will be emailed to you.
Changes to Your Project
1. The rate for the music project covers the use of the track in only one project or production.
If you wish to use the same track in two distinct projects or productions, you must purchase it twice. Any updates to your original production, such as trailers, will be considered a "new" project or production.
If you need to use numerous tracks in your project(s) or if you need many different versions of the same track, a blanket license will normally be less expensive. We can offer you blanket license choices; please contact us
for more information.
2. For sound effect usage, you can use Sounds for any of your projects. However, there are some usage conditions; please read the Licensing Agreement
for more information.
Using Our Music and Sound Effects In Other Ways
1. Our music licenses are granted for the purpose of synchronizing our music with your visuals (audio-visual use). Music-only creations (such as audio-only CDs) require a particular license agreement, and music cannot be re-recorded, reproduced, or re-sold without one. Please contact us
2. Our Sounds licenses are issued to allow you to use our sound effects in your audio and video projects only. A specific license agreement is required if you want to distribute or reproduce the sounds where they are synchronized with other media productions such as product design or applications. Please contact us for details.
We cannot guarantee a refund for online purchases unless there is a technical issue, such as a file flaw, and we are contacted within 48 hours of the purchase. To request a refund, please contact us , and we will gladly assist you.
Refunds will be processed within 15 working days using the original payment method.
VAT and Tax Charges
Please note that our prices include Thailand's standard tax and VAT rates.
Public Performance of Your Project
This issue is particularly relevant to the public performance of your production that syncs with our music (Tracks), Please keep in mind that any public performance (broadcast, website use, live events, etc.) of your project requires a public performance license. The entity performing the song, such as a broadcaster, website owner, or music venue (rather than the producing studio), has the responsibility to clear this license with the local performing rights organizations.
This will aid in the distribution of license fee income to composers and publishers whose music has been used. This is why it is critical for production companies to fill out cue sheets so that the broadcaster may provide the necessary information about the music played to the local performing rights organizations.
Monetization of Your Projects/Productions on Third Party Platforms
You, particularly the person who purchases the Commercial Use license from the music catalog, can "Monetize" by uploading your Projects or Productions to third-party platforms, such as www.YouTube.com or any of YouTube"s applications, that offer monetization capabilities (each, a "Third Party Platform"), and receiving payment for the display of such third-party content in conjunction with such action.
If one of your Projects is licensed under these Terms and Conditions as well as the Licensing Agreement, or if you otherwise receive a claim from the Third Party Platform regarding your Project's use of unlicensed Tracks, you must: (a) notify Hear & Found at [email protected]
and provide (i) the email address you used to sign up for your account with Hear & Found, (ii) the Project's name as it appears in your account. (iii) the URL to the uploaded Project, (i) a screenshot of the claim you received, and (v) any other information Hear & Found requests. We can assist you in releasing the claim against your uploaded Project as long as you provide the requested information to us.
*Please note that Hear & Found is a third-party licensor on behalf of our artists. Our artists are within their rights to use a Content ID system to monetize videos that use their content in an attempt to limit piracy. Even though the Content ID companies use an automated system to identify the songs, the system typically doesn’t know the difference between piracy and properly licensed music, but we can fix this for you.
Any claims made against the Projects that you post to Third Party Platforms or your channel, or your inability to Monetize any Projects, will not be Hear & Found's responsibility to you or any third party (s). Furthermore, Hear & Found will not reimburse you or any third-party in any manner if Hear & Found Monetizes any of your Projects on a Third Party Platform or for your inability to Monetize any of your Projects regardless of the reason why.
