Questions and Answers
I would like to use your noise generators to block noises at work. Is that OK? Yes, of course: this is for your personal use.
We are an open office, and we would like to use your noise generators to cover noises in our whole building. Do we need a license? Yes, you need a license, probably of the first category.
May I use your noise generator sounds in a video or a music project of mine? If it is a personal project, yes. If is distributed outside your family and friend circles, no. Making it accessible on the Internet is not allowed.
What? myNoise sound generators aren't like virtual intruments I can use for my own music compositions? No, they are not. They should be considered as the equivalent of an artist's song, though the unique technology used produces an always changing sound, and provides a high level of customization.
But I am a supporter of the site... Purchasing Taylor Swift's latest album won't allow you to use her songs outside the scope of a personal use, though you paid for it...
Ooops, I used one of your sounds in my latest YouTube video. I gave credit to myNoise and posted a link back to the website though. Will you forgive me? You are not supposed to do this. If your video is highly creative - and I am in awe - you probably won't hear from me, or if you hear from me, it will be in a good way. If it's a video with myNoise playing in the background, because you were listening to myNoise when you recorded that video (e.g. role play gaming), that will be fine too. Please then use a hyperlink to refer to the website in the video description.
So, I can post a video with a still image and one of your generator playing in the background? The answer is a clear NO. Not with still images, not with moving images, nor with added voice-over.
May I use your noise generator sounds in a game or a documentary? I mean, for free, but sure, myNoise will be credited. No, myNoise sound generators are not available for free, nor under a CC:BY-like license.
I am a doctor and want to use your noise generators as a treatment for my patients. Do I need to ask for permission? Using this website at your office or in your practice, will require a license. However, recommending this website to your patients, and having your patients use our generators privately at home, is totally free.
Your Jungle Noise is awesome. Can we use it for our next movie soundtrack? Not for free.
