NCB can clear the music in most TV productions. However, there are a few exceptions:
- If you plan to use existing music in theme songs, bumpers and trailers, you must contact the rights holder directly.
- If you plan to broadcast a TV drama outside the Nordic-Baltic countries, all music must be cleared with the rights holders.
- If you have made broadcasting agreements outside the Nordic-Baltic countries, NCB can only clear the rights to Nordic-Baltic music.
- If you plan to use commissioned music, read more here.
