Wondering if there are any other suggestions you have made that may be incorrect? Here is a quick list of facts about royalty and copyrighted music:
1. Free music is usually not free to use.
It is a common misconception that if a song is labeled royalty, it could be used for free. It’s not fair! Music must be paid for you to be licensed to use it.
2. You can use free music on YouTube.
Free licensed music from a company like melodyloops.com can be used 100% of YouTube videos. Here is a blog post that covers how you can get complete protection from Content ID claims.
3. Free copyrighted and royal music is not the same thing.
Although we have combined both principles, we want to make a clear distinction that copyright does not have a copyright and is not profitable means that music is copyrighted.
4. Absolutely free copyright music is rare.
Free copyrighted music is actually unicorn, which means it is very difficult to find real free copyrighted tracks. Almost every song available has some form of copyright, even music created by Creative Commons.
5. Free music is not stock music.
Stock music is another term often used to refer to free royal music. This is incorrect. It may include stock music, but stock music is not always free.
6. Free Royalty Music includes all genres and genres.
It’s not just about the instruments or the background music. Basically you can get all kinds of music like royalty for free.
7. Not all free music licenses are the same.
Each free music company operates differently so it is important that you are aware of the terms and conditions before you sign up.
Most of the music you will find, in fact, is copyrighted – including free royal music. And royalties are still being paid even in music that is considered free.
Here is the thing. When you work with a free music background, you are buying a license for any track you want.
This gives you (the licensee) the freedom to use the music in your videos, but the company from which you purchased the license actually pays profits to the composers.
