Posted this on another posters link but figured rather start my own. I am trying to understand some of the applications of Regular license. So I am curious to how liscences work. I run a youtube channel and I wanted to use music from here. I bought a track Fire for 14 dollars and it said I can use it for a single website. I am a private reviewer and I don’t make much money, but its great to have background music for my reviews. I just want to make sure they don’t require me to buy a song everytime I want to use it for every video, though its all used on the same channel/website and only by me.
Hmm not really, I have read that page and I am still confused by its clarification. Both say a single application which is for my youtube site. Both are extremely vague and are similar in nature in that listed posting. – Or perhaps I don’t understand and that’s why I am asking for clarification. I am the only one using these tracks for content to be viewed NEVER sold.
For a little guy like me, buying a 70 dollar track is a little out of the question.
Hi Psylacus, both extended license and regular license states that usage is limited to one application.
I think you need to use your own judgement when understanding the licensing terms. According to me, if you are making different review videos about different products then it would mean a different application each time. So it means another regular license for each video.
But for a logo it might be different becasue a logo created for one brand means a single application and you should be able to include it in the beginning of all your videos with a single regular license.
If these terms are not viable for your business, then i think you need to get a custom track for your project.
But i might be wrong, so you better use your own judgement or ask a person who understands legal stuff.
Is your youtube channel hosting a podcast series? If that is the case, you should be OK with the regular license – I was just looking at letter “G” under extended licenses to make my case for you getting an extended license. I may be misunderstanding the terminology however.. But if you look at license usage examples (link on the same page) it would seem you’d be okay if you use the file over and over as long as it’s within a freely downloadable series.
Still a lot of grey area. I just don’t want to be stealing from people hard earned work, but at the same time I can’t afford to paying 14 dollars for a video I don’t make much if any money off in the first place. So I guess it boils down to, either its ok to use the songs I purchase in general video’s. I am not a corporate entity, just looking to give people are good show and some knowledge.
Hopefully someone will get back to me that understands this legal stuff.

I don’t know is it good for you or no,but maybe You can find someone to make song just for you.It will be like freelance work:) If it’s not against rules,you can send me e-mail.But only if some rock music track will be good for you.I don’t make other genres of music:)
Thanks for the info, I will discontinue use of the tracks then immediately . Thanks for the input, going to try and see if I can find some other way to get some music. Thanks One time usage is an ouch.
