Art – my point is, I don’t think it deserves a new topic, but I’m unsure about the “definition” of “on topic”. IMO composer f’s comment was “on topic” but argumentative. So…. go figure. I’ll continue to browse and mostly keep my mouth shut. I value what you’re doing here and don’t want to derail…. Cheers,October 2, 2016 at 11:04 am #25975
I will say I enjoy the topic and discussion, and believe it’s one that should be discussed openly and candidly.
It’s not a “topic” requiring discussion. It only required an answer. The question is an inquiry into the industry standard terms.
As Mark said: single use vs. pay once use forever. Question answered.
There isn’t meant to be an implied “which is better?” in the subject heading. “Royalty Free Music versus Stock Music: Which is Better?” would be a different topic.October 2, 2016 at 1:39 pm #25977
Michael – while I agree with your definitions, it is interesting how common use of language often changes definitions over the years. Annoying, but definitions change whether we want them to or not.
My favorite musical definition pet peeve – R&B now meaning hip hop instead of classic tunes of the Motown era. 🙂October 2, 2016 at 1:50 pm #25978

Agreed, but the definitions are Mark’s
In this case, I just wanted to know, from a Royalty Free library owner, what the dfference in terminology means in the the context of Royalty Free libraries like his (ML) and PTrax.
Yes, back when I started writing production music, during the Roosevelt administration (Teddy not Franklin) any music that was not “original” (now called “custom”) was “Stock Music” (or in the negative “canned” music). 😀
