A license granting permission to synchronize a song with moving images on a screen - generally in television, film, or advertisements. Sync licenses are required from both the recording owner and the composition owner when a song is used, and they are most often paid as a one-time up-front fee. In addition to the upfront fee, songs earn a performance royalty (payable to songwriters/publishers) when the program containing their song is broadcast or streamed.
