Does my reseller have a license?

Thank you for your commitment and concern as there are still many music pirates out there. Alex Ruis defines a music pirate as an entity that makes music accessible to others without the permission of rights holder(s). He considers a person who consumes music for her or his own pleasure without the consent of rightholder(s) to be a rascal.

What is the relevance of this?

Reasonable and fair compensation for a performed service is among the preconditions under which a person can continue to perform her or his service. Lawmakers worldwide have failed to establish what constitutes reasonable and fair compensation for composing, performing, recording and distributing music. To avoid financial ruin, Alex Ruis set the fee for streaming a single music track at $0,01-0,05 a time. The fee for downloading a single music track is $1-1,50.

Below is an exclusive list of possible and well-known resellers licensed to sell WAV (1411 kbps) through compressed files of Alex Ruis with a bitrate of 320 kbps. Low bitrate files are offered as a stream. Private use only.

There are no authorized resellers of sheet music.

If you want to use a piece of music in a way other than listening to it privately, you need a license for that particular use. For example, if you want to add the music to your movie (series). Many of Alex Ruis' pieces of music were created for use in numerous productions by others.
