Stock music is the name given to the music owned by stock music libraries and licensed to customers for use in film, television, radio and other media.
Unlike popular and classical music publishers, who typically own less than 50 percent of the copyright in a composition, Stock music libraries own all of the copyrights of their music, meaning that it can be licensed without seeking the composer's permission, as is necessary in licensing music from normal publishers. This is because virtually all music created for music libraries is done on a work for hire basis. Stock music is therefore a convenient medium for media producers—they can be assured that they will be able to license any piece of music in the library at a reasonable rate.
Stock music libraries will typically offer a broad range of musical styles and genres, enabling producers and editors to find much of what they need in the same library. Stock Music libraries vary in size from a few hundred tracks up to many thousands. The first stock music library was setup by De Wolfe in 1927 with the advent of sound in film, the company originally scored music for use in silent film. Another music library was set up by Ralph Hawkes of Boosey & Hawkes Music Publishers in the 1930s.
Stock Music is a less expensive alternative to the use of popular or well known music in a production, since it is not necessary to obtain specific permission or pay additional clearance fees for the use of a song that has instant recognition.
