Getty Images expands music licensing platform

Getty Images has expanded its music licensing platform to provide content creators with access to more than 45,000 pre-licensed tracks through its SoundExpress platform.

Those licensing the tracks need not pay additional fees for synchronisation, performance or mechanical royalties, and are free to use the music across any project at no further cost or obligation.

“With the rapid expansion of digital video content in a multi-screen world, music licensing has become more complex and costly for businesses, advertisers and creatives,” says Melinda Lee, General Manager, Getty Images Music. “With this newly enhanced collection, Getty Images dramatically simplifies and reduces the cost of music licensing to accommodate the new digital world — no extra steps and no extra fees.”

Customers can search the collection at and license tracks instantly.

“We are constantly innovating and anticipating the needs of our creative customers, who rely on Getty Images for the highest quality content whether it’s imagery, music or video,” said Andy Saunders, Senior Vice President of Creative at Getty Images. “Our new royalty free music collection lets our customers access the best tracks without anything holding them back from a licensing perspective.”
