YouTube and Co.


When you put music to film and publish it on YouTube, Clipfish or other video portals, two rules apply: First off, you need written permission from the authors (composer and writer) or publishers. Secondly, YouTube has not yet signed agreements with the publishing rights organisations in all counties all over the world. So it even might happen that your video will be blocked by YouTube in your country if you use registered music.


Play it safe! At polysounds, you can purchase a YouTube license for 2.95 USD. That license allows you to add the music you want to your film while playing it completely safe from a legal standpoint.
