Copyright is the ownerships’ right. In general, a video, music, illustration, tutorial lectures, or any other creation that requires a great deal of your time and effort belongs to you entirely and must not be used without authorization! Due to this, you must abide by the copyright regulations to be active in programs like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and more.
Then why do we need copyright-free music?
Because a single individual created that piece and all of its rights and privileges belong to the owner eternally. In other words, when you download a music album legally, the songs are still not yours, and uploading them on your social accounts or utilizing them in your videos is not allowed. But how this problem can be resolved? To fix it, you can do one of the two things below:
- Your videos can be produced using Royalty-free music. (This refers to copyright-free music; Which are claimed by the author that manipulating the piece is permitted.)
- It’s also possible to apply music whose creator has authorized its use if you cite the source of the music. (Basically, mention the song’s title and its producer in the caption of Instagram and YouTube. If you don’t do so, you simply risk having your video removed if the publisher sues you.)
It is likely for you to primarily consider ignoring ethics and manipulating the piece without regard to copyright regulations. Sadly, you’re wrong about it. 😊
