Youtube Copyright Music
Using copyrighted music for your YouTube video without authorization may violate copyright law. A copyright claim could be issued on your video by the music rights holder, which leads to your video being removed or the audio stripped from it. However, you can avoid violating copyright law by using two options given by Youtube.
First, you can search for free music from youtube. You can click on any of the free music entries to listen to a preview. You will see 'You're free to use this song in any of your videos' in most cases. Or you may see 'You're free to use this song in any of your videos, but you must include the following in your video description' followed by a disclaimer of some kind that needs to be copied and utilized exactly as the description in some cases. When you find the music you desire to add to your video, just click the download arrow next to the title to download it for use. There is no limitation to the music on the screen. You can search by genre, title, mood, instrument, duration, and attribution.
Second, you can also seek for copyrighted commercial music that you can insert into your videos. The YouTube commercial Music Policies section consists of many popular songs that video creators are interested in using. They are usually accompanied with some restrictions. For example, the song is limited and blocked in some countries or the owner may put ads on your video to monetize the use of the music. The list also contains songs that you are not granted permission to use.
