Performance Rights for Production Music and Royalty Free Music

Performance Rights for Production Music and Royalty Free Music

You might see the term PRO, or Performance Rights Organization when shopping for music on Bard, Pond5, or any number of music licensing sites. What is this and how does it affect how I buy a song for my video production? The “Performance Rights Organization” label added to certain artists might sound like a bit of legal wrangling that most video editors and creators don't want to deal with, especially considering royalties are something most video creators might want to avoid. Fret not. It’s actually way less complicated than it might seem at face value.

Sonic Bloom Announces BardMusic.io: A Production Music Discovery Platform

Bard™ is drastically simplifying the way media creators find production music on the internet. Instead of searching hundreds of different sites for music, Bard searches them for you.

With a single search, you can see content from Pond 5, Audio Jungle, and Jamendo, with more coming soon. That way you can spend a lot less time searching, and a lot more time finding the best song for your project.
