    Inserting music onto Youtube

    Hi All,

    If I was going to create a video, lets say something using GoPro. Once I have finished copying it over to the computer HDD and edited the colours and all. If I wanted to insert a music track onto the video and then want to upload it onto youtube, what type of music am I allowed to insert and upload? Im talking from a legal perspective.

    The reason why I ask this is because I have seen many videos on YT that have the sound muted because the track used in the video was not licensed or something along those lines.

    So I just want to know if I own a CD and then rip it into MP3 or whatever format, can I insert it into the video to upload?
    Regards,
    Phil

    Basically all music is created (written, played, sung) by someone, and they own copyright, just the same as we own copyright to our photos. So using current (or past) chart toppers is probably the quickest way to get the sound or your video removed.

    But as linked by strictfunctor, there are sites where people put music that you can use, with conditions.

    So if you own a CD, you own a copy of the music for private domestic use, and you cannot rip the song and use it on youtube etc.

    I have placed a number of audio visual productions on YouTube, and I have found that their software for identifying copyright music is quite remarkable. With minutes of posting, the sound track has been identified, even to the point of identifying the owner of the copyright.

    However, I believe YouTube has taken a more pragmatic, common sense approach to what they do about it. They realise that we are not making money, we are not using these sound tracks for commercial gain, and if required to pay copyright then we simply would not be using the tracks at all. There are millions of people using copyrighted music in what I would describe as an innocent way without exploiting the copyright holder.

    So ..... what YouTube does, is to leave the clip on YouTube, but to add a link to the copyright holder and identify the music concerned. They also place adverts on your clip. This means that potentially, the copyright holder and YouTube can both collect from each of those millions of "illegal" videos in what is a win-win situation.

    Rather than just deleting the videos, which benefits no-one, they at least stand a chance of both making a profit off the back of your A/V. This appears to be the common sense approach, and long may it continue in an increasingly litigious world.

    Ive been putting things on youtube for a while now and have had no dramas using any of the thousands of free music tracks youtube provide. If I decide I would like rock music to go with a 6.45 clip I look for rock music that length and have always been surprised what ive managed to find. If you use a mac you could always try making your own in garage band.

    I'll have to check out the link that Strictfunctor posted. I havent tried posting many of my GoPro creations on YouTube but when I have they havent even gone online before they're knocked back due to music copyright. Free open source music sounds cool to me :-)

    - - - Updated - - -

    Whooot Whooot, look at that, it actually works. I get really jack of going to sites that promise open source stuff only to find it hidden behind multiple downloads, add ons or just outright BS. I just popped over and bang, a couple of clicks and I've got a track on my PC to use as I please. Cheers Strictfunctor
