Using Royalty Free Music On Youtube
Safely use our music on your Youtube
Using our music on your Youtube video is fine - it's one
of the things our license covers. However, we do ask for a
credit for our music composers, to go alongside your video
on your youtube video page. This will not only identify the
music to anyone who reads your Youtube page, but may also
help Youtube identify the music clearly, which in turn can
help Youtube establish that the music is OK to use without
The credits do not need to be on the video itself, but in
the text that you can add about your video, on the Youtube
page. It doesn't need to be prominent, the very end is fine!
A good example would be:
Composer: Gavin Courtie (PRS) & Liz Radford (PRS)
Publisher: Gavin Courtie (PRS) & Liz Radford (PRS)
When you license music from us, we email you the track and
composer details, so you will have a record of these already.
You may be wondering if you need a Performance Rights (PRO)license
for any music you include in a Youtube video. The answer is
"No, you do not" . It is the hosting website that
has to arrange this, and Youtube have deals with PRS, ASCAP
and other societies worldwise for all the videos they host.
If you want the video to appear your own website, you can
use Youtube's "Embed" feature to put the video onto
your own website, and since the video is still actually hosted
on Youtube's servers rather than yours, you still won't need
any kind of PRO license.
