Anyone know of a good music library for purchase?
I checked BH and theirs seem to be out of date. I'm the way now is by purchasing individual tracks on Envato or similar. This however isn't the best for where I work. The purchasing department is super picky and I'm 99% sure they would not approve purchases from Envato or any other non-major online store.
It'd be best if I could just buy bundle of CDs. I know that's old school, but so is where I work.
It was a pain when with FCPX was only on the App Store. Took my company months to finally buy it. Thankfully, FCPX has had free updates this whole time, so we don't have to deal with purchasing.
Looking for a way to check in advance whether youtube would block specific music tracks from my iTunes Library instead of doing a trial and error (uploading to YT and then figuring out that's blocked)... suggestions welcome.
YouTube has a way for checking music for copyright prior to uploading. (Since end of 2014)
Sign in, go to Create Suite(??) > Create Music > and then there is free music library and a search box that you can type in song title and artist to see what restriction may apply.
Lots of music is allowed, but may not be allowed for "Monetized" content. If this is the case,the copyright owner is then allowed to place an ad on your video. Want to bet that Google/YouTube doesn't contact owner and offer advertising?
Anyway, good place to start to check your music for copyright.
Copyrights are complicated as words, music, and performances may have individual copyrights and the requirement for creating a copyright and fair usage has changed over the years. Simply purchasing music does not give you the right to use that music without an contract with the copyright owner.
There are lots of sights for obtaining copyright free or creative commons free use of music.
As far as copyright / content strikes and the ability to appeal, this has gotten somewhat better and faster.
Lots of music/sounds was getting tagged due to algorithms used to match segments. It even was tagging Apple's own sound library as copyrighted. Apple's sounds are allowed in commercial music without royalties. Getting better, but major pain.
