Music that have uploaded on here are all automatically fit the CC (u see them in the song page, right below the player), doesn't matter what the artist agrees or not. In fact if he/she don't agree, probably wouldn't upload already, lol!

So feel comfortable to choose whatever music you like, follow the CC rules and best to notify the artist(s) first. Remember to credit the artist(s) too.


Right, mate, are you reading this?

Unless the artist has either intentionally or mistakenly put up someone else's work.

Also, it is BEST to ask the artists first.

Don't monetize the video, say who made the song and where you downloaded it from.

That's pretty much all you have to do on your end to use whatever song you want here, it's just courteous to ask permission and put a link.

As others have said, and I would like to reinforce the idea - it is always nice to ask, and you cannot monetize your video without explicit permission either. :)

Personally, I don't want my music to be used for free since I sell licenses, but it is a good trade-off considering how many listens my music gets on this site. hehe
