Production music (also known as "library music") is the name given to recorded music produced and owned by production music libraries and licensed to customers for use in film, television, radio and other media. Music Production Libraries such as Your Tune Music Ltd own all of the copyrights of their music, meaning that it can be licensed without seeking the composer's permission and is therefore a convenient solution for media producers.
