Hello, I do video editing.
I have doubts about the use of royalty-free music.
There are many sites that sell royalty-free music.
We are going to talk about the specific case of Epidemicsound.
If I purchase Epidemicsound’s monthly service, can I use a piece of music in an advertising video?
My question is:
I know that if you have a YouTube channel, you can use all the music from Epidemicsound, but if you ever stop paying for the service the music is no longer yours and you cannot have your YouTube videos with their music.
That is to say that somehow they “rent” the use of music from you.
In the same way, I wonder how is the issue regarding the use of music for videos of advertising that will be shown in social networks.
Also, I have another question: YouTube has free music rights, and several of them allow the use without even clarifying who the author is. That royalty free music can be used in an advertisement? I think so, but I don’t know for sure.
Please, whoever knows what the subject of music is like, share it with everyone.
Thank you very much!
