With a catalog spanning many decades and all genres, chances are good that NAGASWARA has the perfect track to match your synch needs.

Our Licensing options

We have several ways to procure music or lyrics from our catalog see the various options below.

Synch license

Our most common license granted is a synchronization license. A synch license is any license granted for a song used in a film, film trailer, video game, television commercial, web video etc. A synch is music that is synchronized to any moving image across multiple mediums.

Master license

Often a synch use also needs to be cleared on the master side. A master license refers to the recorded side of the music business, and is typically handled by the record label who released the track and holds the master rights to the song. NAGASWARA handles the masters for many of its songs.

Print License

Do you want to use one of our famous song lyrics in a book or magazine, on merchandise, a lyrics or app? That is an example of a print license, which is any license that is not with moving images and is just the lyrical element. Sheet music also falls under our print license.
