Music for the people!


Lickd is the only platform that’s convinced music labels to allow creators like us to use chart music. I’m sorry but stock music for me (just my opinion) is way overused, it really is. This is the way to go. We can be unique, we can stand out with chart music. Our AdSense actually improved…

Usually you’d spend thousands to license music, especially chart music for your videos, but no longer. With Lickd you can put stuff up on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc, and the licensing is taken care of for you really easily.

If you’ve been in the creator industry for a while, you know this is truly groundbreaking. There are just no other websites that allow you to license tracks like this for use on your channels.

There seemed to be no easy way to use popular songs in my videos without getting copyright claims. I use the Lickd songs because it saves money, saves time and it helps me to grow my channel. My videos using popular music from Lickd have much better watch time than the other workout videos.

I’ve always wanted to use mainstream music for YouTube videos. When you use music that people recognise, it makes the whole viewing experience a lot more enjoyable for people to listen to whilst they’re watching your video.

The cool thing about using commercial music is that it elevates the perceived production value of your videos because it creates an impression of having a big budget.

Frequently asked questions

Forever! Lickd licenses are generally granted in perpetuity so there’s no danger of your video ever being taken down. (Yay!)

Absolutely, yes! Lickd is the first copyrighted music licensing platform that allows you to use great music AND avoid demonetization, with built-in protection from copyright claims.

As a YouTube partner, we integrate directly into YouTube’s Content ID to tell YouTube you’ve got permission to use a track. If YouTube still decides to put a claim on your video, we’re able to squash it’s ugly little head for you, so you have nothing to worry about.

Once you’ve purchased a license from Lickd, you’ll get an Mp3 download which you can then add to your video using your video editing software. 

When you’re ready to upload your video to YouTube, include your license attribution in your video description and upload your video as “Unlisted” with plenty of time before you need your video to go public. This allows VOUCH to clear any claims for you (usually within 30 minutes), or for our dedicated music support team to jump in and clear any claims for you.

Our ‘premium’ copyrighted music licenses do not permit the songs to be used for lyric videos or by themselves as an ‘art track’ (for example, with just an image of the album artwork, a black screen, static images, stock footage, etc).

That’s because our licenses have been created for those who need background music for their original video content. The type of videos described above are deemed not to use songs as background music for content, but simply as a way for viewers to stream the song itself. This is copyright infringement and therefore cannot be covered by our licenses. This restriction also concerns AI-generated lyric videos.
