Music Licensing is the licensing of the music which is copyrighted by the individual who is associated with the music or who is the artist behind the creation of the music. The artists who make the music do that as either part of their job or as their favorite pastime. For both the cases they need to money to live or to create more types of music. Thus by buying this licensed music you are indirectly paying them what they deserve.

So before going for music licensing, we must first know what a license is and what it is meant for. License is nothing but a grant or a permission given by the government authority. This permission is required when you want to broadcast the music, or edit the music which includes the lyrics as well as the tune etc. Sometimes a song which is created by an artist can be sung by any other singer in a music show or a concert. This act cannot be done if the music is copyright protected. Permission has to be granted by the artists beforehand.

You can find the detailed information in the concerned websites on how to license music. Broadcasting music also needs music licensing. You need to pay the licensed music artist the fees for broadcasting the music whether it is radio stations or any live concerts. You would get details of how to license music for broadcasting from the concerned website. The radio stations need to playback many types of music of different culture, genre, language etc. Thus they need to keep a large database of music for playing them according to wish. Radio stations broadcast music and for that they need music licensing.

There is a publishing company associated with the artist who looks after the legal matters of how to license music of his. Nowadays most of the artists have a publishing house which deals with their music licensing. Television channels too need to do music licensing for the music which is being played with the video for Television shows etc. If any film or movie needs to use music of an artist the film producer has to pay the money to the artist before introducing the music in his film. But it is very important for an artist to know how to license music which he creates so that nobody can steal the music which the artists may have created spending quite a number of sleepless nights.
