  • 1.  On Hold Music Copyright

    Posted 10-08-2018 06:21
    Hi everyone.

    I have a question related to "on_hold_music" music that is used on "In-queue" flows (Hold Music action https://help.mypurecloud.com/articles/hold-music-action/) and on-hold.


    In my client's CC we will use the Purecloud's default music on in-queue flow as well as on-hold. Therefore my question is: can the default music be used for free? Is there any copyright infringement for using this music?

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,
    Ana Laia

    Hi Ana,

    No one's ever asked that, but I'll find out.  FYI you can upload your own music to the hold music system prompt to use it instead of our default music if you want.

    I'll have to see if I can find out something, along with Melissa. I was actually the one tasked with getting the contract signed licensing that music many years ago (no, I did not choose the music, I inherited it :-) ), so I may be able to figure out what the status is these days. It was something we licensed for use within our products, so it would not be free for someone to use outside of our system. But, that was years ago.

    It is copyrighted.  If you truly love it enough, you would need to license it from a third party that we use.  Otherwise upload your own music to our hold music prompt.

    I remember that I saw details about it (for the former CIC, but the music is the same) in KB article, and I was able to find it (https://my.inin.com/products/selfhelp/kb/Lists/KnowledgeBase/DisplayKB.aspx?ID=885)

    If you do not have access, these are details (I'm doing copy/paste).
    Yes, this is interesting trivia, but I found interesting for myself what details I was able to remember
