No matter what digital platform you are releasing your content on, every creator will come to a point where they require royalty free music for videos. Royalty free music, also referred to as stock music, no copyright music, copyright free music, or non copyright music, is music that is allowed to be used by people other than the copyright owner, without paying royalties to the copyright owner. An example of paying royalties could be shown by the radio. Every time a song is played on the radio, the station pays a small fee in royalties to the record label or music distributor, who shares that fee between the artist, the songwriters, the label executives and more.
Avoiding paying royalties for music makes the lives of video creators much easier. Without personal connections, using music that is still owned under copyright by an artist or record label can get very complicated. YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook all have advanced Content ID systems. Content ID technology means that if you upload a video with copyrighted music, it will be flagged. A flag could mean your content is muted or removed, your account is taken down, or the monetization from your video will be redirected. This means that even if you have verbal permission from an artist to use their song, unless the distribution companies have notified YouTube, you still will get flagged for using their song!
The best solution to these challenges comes from online libraries which contain royalty-free music for videos. There are hundreds of options from these, from YouTube channels of music for creators to the loads of websites that a Google search would reveal. It is easy to be overwhelmed with the huge amount of options. Thousands of songs are available for purchase or download, and many of them aren’t of the highest quality.
