With the Creative Commons License you can use my music for free in almost all media (like YouTube, films, games, etc.) but you need to credit me.

Things that must be included:

  • Name of the artist.
  • The name of the piece(s)
  • A link to the source of the music (web site)
  • The license you are using (a link to the license)

How should I credit you?

(“Title-song”can be multiple songs separated by a comma example: Title-Song1, Title-Song2, Title-Song3).

It is important that you replace the word Title-Song with the actual title of the music piece that you are using!

Where to put the Copyright Attribution?

You need to put the credits where everyone who consumes your project sees it. examples:

Videos: YouTube and Vimeo credits can be placed in the video description or in the video itself.

Streaming: On your profile page, add a “Music” section to place the credits. Please check the specific question about streaming service on this section.

Video Games: Most commonly, credits are placed on a “Credits” screen found in the settings menu.

Live Production: Credits should be placed in the program for the production. If no program exists, a voice announcement can be made.

Films: Credits should be placed in the credits portion of the film, either before or after the main film section.

Podcast/Audio Production: Credits should be voiced – usually at the end of the production.

TV/Radio Ads: It is more common to purchase a license, but credits may be shown visually in the production, or done as a voice-over in audio-only media.

Music on Hold: It is more common to purchase a license, but it is possible to record a voice-over for each piece of music used.

Background Music: It is more common to purchase a license, but credits may be posted in a public area of the retail space.
