Q:

What’s the Difference Between CC0 and Royalty Free SFX?

Synchedin offers a range of SFX on a royalty free and creative commons basis. But what’s the difference? Well, let us clear that up for you right now!

Royalty Free:

Royalty free can be simplified down to “free of royalty”. This basically means that whenever the sound (this also applies to music) is used, a royalty does not need to be paid to the original creator.
