  17. Doing Exploring says:

    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

  23. Rusky Husky says:

    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

  24. Beyblade Kroozie says:

    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! 😁👍

  25. Doing Exploring says:

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

    Boss!!!! This guy and his information helps out my channel big time!!

  34. Wendell Live! says:

    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.

  35. Yashraj Solutions says:

    great sir keep on it. This crusade

  36. Skills life says:


  37. bun satya says:

    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 ?

  38. NidgeDFX says:

    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.

  39. aznpikachu215 says:

  50. COnTV • Resumo da Internet says:

    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?

  66. Green Leaf City Video Gaming says:

    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!

  67. Georg Gross says:

    Aussies will get pissed because they know nothing about this.

  68. Don V says:

    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?

  69. Rasul Gitinaev says:

  71. Abderrahim Oulkadi says:

    What about reaction videos?

  72. Aileen's Lookbook says:

    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.

  73. The Daily Egg says:

    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

  78. Rajmahendra says:

    this is so much to work on 🙂 I just use Youtube Library videos just to play safe till I grow 😛 if there are any good loyalty copyright-free lifetime sites please share me.

  79. J PumpkinKing says:

    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.

  84. Riddle Talk says:

    So does that means youtube will demonetize all the reaction channels?
    as they specially use copyrighted clips to react on them.
