What’s the copyright on the sounds?

The sounds recorded and reimagined for Cities and Memory and presented on the sound map and on our Audioboom channel are licensed to the Cities and Memory project by individual contributors – every contributor retains the original copyright of their sound. The sounds may not be used for purposes outside of the Cities and Memory project without the explicit permission of the copyright holder. We offer up new field recordings from our database for free use as part of Cities and Memory, but they may not be used for other purposes without prior permission. If you’d like to use any of our sounds (field recordings or remixes) for any purpose, please get in touch.
