You are still undecided about whether to give your music away for free or not? We discuss this question in this article here.
Note: On Jamendo Music, all tracks are available under Creative Commons licenses (CC). CC is an alternative to the classic copyright scheme. It provides a legal way to share music for free through the internet. In this sense, the music can be streamed for free and for many years, also be downloaded for free on Jamendo Music. It is quite recent that the option was added to block the free download.
How to disable the free download?
- In your artist account, visit the menu Sign up for Jamendo Licensing.
- Scroll down to the table with the name of your tracks.
- Check the box "Disable downloads on Jamendo Music". You can check the box for all tracks or only for separate tracks.
- Don't forget to "Submit and continue"
