    Heey, cool video. Really helpful, Thx for info. This was one of my first problems/ question when I started my channel. Can or cannot use copyright music and in what conditions.

  7. Doing Exploring Post author

    Yes you can, but you need permission, you also need a licence to do it, but you need to fill out a form and have to understand what you are allowed to do and what not allowed to do

    Hey Rob! I've heard it's safe to use 95% of the copyright music from video games, since they've changed it when a bunch of big "let's play" channels complained

  13. Blader Kroozie Post author

    I may be a music channel of unreleased music … but out of all my videos, I only have one copyright claim … but I'm happy! 😁👍

  14. Doing Exploring Post author

    Also with copyrighted music, you can make money, but half of the money goes to the artist

  15. Jurta Post author

    just look at my mashups they have two copyrighted music playing at the same time <3

    I have been making cover videos for about 2 years using backing tracks. Since I’m doing this for fun and my own learning about video editing, I’m ok without monetizing. I’m thinking of possibly changing to a new channel with a new focus in the future, but for now I’m enjoying creating my music videos.

  20. bun satya Post author

    I spend money to purchased all the sound effect and song for my channel but one question I used it for multiple on my video could it will bring issue for my video ? By saying that I don’t actually get monetization yet ?

    According to Copyright Law we are a small business in a less than 2,000 square feet (hence my office space is my business space). If you have a radio in the back ground you are allowed to have it. You cannot use a CD/streaming music. You could fight every claim and technically win, or take them to court and sue. If your work space is more than 2k you can have up to 6 speakers in your work space, this is fair use with a radio station btw not picking your music.
    Source: Google "radio business and law"
    I'm guessing YT don't care about this law, I want to try it but i don't want to lose my channel over them not following the law. Im thinking of making a burner account to test it.

    Yes, you can use. Just leave it bellow -30dB and NEVER get any copyright claim. YT content id bot can't identify the song if you talk on that. Doing it for 6 years on YT and NEVER had any problem. Use michael jackson, beattles, lady gaga, whatever. Use instrumentals without vocals. It works fine 🙂

    Two questions – are these lists curated by YouTube or through submissions of the copyright owners? Secondly, what if you search for a song and it doesn't appear on this list at all?

    When I upload a video with copyright music I switch the video licenses.

    Example: I switch the Standard YouTube License to Creative Commons License before the video is completely uploaded.

    Depending how long your videos are you should immediately switch these video licenses as fast as you can but IF you're able to beforehand.

    Edit: I use the creative commons license which protects me from being copyrighted. When I upload in the first minute I first switch to that license, then I click save. By the time the video is done uploading I get no copyright strikes!

    Aussies will get pissed because they know nothing about this.

  42. Don V Post author

    How does this rule apply to music videos? I have a video in which a popular music video is playing in the background. I muted the song, but can the video play or do I have to blur it?

  43. Dimondme8 Post author

    Thank you so much i went from getting 50 subs a month to getting 400 subs in 1 month thanks to your videos!!

  44. Aileen's Lookbook Post author

    Thank you so much for your video. As always very clear cut and informative. and helpful. God bless & have a great weekend. So in the end we cannot use the music. So sad. We are in fact "promoting" their music and artistes are already so wealthy.

  45. The Daily Egg Post author

    I hate how YouTube protects huge companies before their own creators. Instead of giving all the money to the company who owns the song, show clip, movie snippet, etc., share the revenue. It should be changed to this: 50% video image, 50% sound. If you use music for example throughout an entire 10 minute video, 50% of the profit should go to you while the other 50% goes to the music label. If say you used a song for 5 minutes of the 10 minute video, then you get 50%+25%, and the music label only gets the 25% from half the video's audio. This would be a lot more fair to the creators on YouTube and it would open up for a lot more fun when it comes to making content.
    Those dancers who dance to popular songs on YouTube could finally make at least 50% of the profit from their own videos rather than leaving all that money on the table for some music company to take. Just a thought

    I only use music from kinemaster music. A wise man once say "prevention is better than cure" So, with that being said, stay away from the problems and you won't have any problems. PERIOD!!!!

  49. J PumpkinKing Post author

    Having music blocked or muted has NEVER happened to my channel. I can’t monetize the videos, but I certainly am not getting blocked/muted or getting copyright strikes.
    The REAL problem is shill copyright holders making claims on top of the claims by the REAL artists/studios/etc.
