I remember the last few times I used music from the YouTube creator studio, and many of the songs weren't (it did say next to them, though, or you could filter for it)... I don't know what it's like nowadays...
I have never had an issue so far as all ,except those that say to put certain artist info etc into a description, with having the music in a video. They all say" free to use in your video"

Well, I haven't used it since 2017, so I really don't know what it's like now... I remember a while back they were all free to use, but then it changed and it only said that a few could be used for monetization... so, it complicated things a little and I stopped using it... plus, I don't particularly like the ones on YouTube... at least the ones from back then...

Yah YT leads you to think it's okay to use some popular music (as they put up ads for the artist, links etc) but not to monetize it. That makes me nervous. Because they way they word it .. it's vague and I'm left with, well can I or can I not use it (without monetization of course)?! And what if an artist changes their mind in the future? And one of my videos has his song on it. Can the artist then get you for copyright infringement and YT can do nothing to help?

I have found that YouTube Community Guidelines can be vague and left to interpretation which doesn't help when your channel is suspended "due to severe violations". I know of someone who had this happened to him. You won't get specifics either when you ask for the reason why. I once read a post from a confirmed Youtube employee that said, "They won't give you specific examples because that can tell people how to edge the rules without breaking them" So when it comes to using Youtube music on videos outside of Youtube, I won't take the chance.

Hey! I just want to know from where I can get free music for my Videos. Also, I have a suggestion that Rumble should provide some free music source which creators can use in the videos.
till then please let me know from where i can get free music with no copyright issues.
Thanks. :)

I have a simple question. One that for whatever reason, I can't get a direct answer to. The question is... can I use CC music for a video and then make money/sell it?
I went to a CC web site and it goes over diff "CC" liscenses, and man they confused me. This is the site and there is a whole list of sites to get free music from (again, does that mean I can use said music on videos and give them to Rumble, YT, etc?)

So many songs have CC … but there are many types of CC and you can't use them all to monetize, and all I ever see is CC by it, not any of the other types. That's kinda scary. Here's a good page. It's looking like you are "safe" if you use CC and CC-BY and can monetize that (put in videos, sell them, etc) is that right?
(but as I said, sometimes you can find the exact license to know what to do.
