What is Copyright?
Copyright is the exclusive legal right given to the originator for a fixed number of years to print and publish artistic or musical materials. For example, whenever you create a video clip, music, artistic work, or training course yourself, all of its legal rights belong to you and nobody has the authority to use it without receiving the given consent. Therefore, to be active on platforms like Instagram and YouTube, you should obey copyright rules.
Why should we Use Music without Copyright?
We should use music without copyright because a content creator is a person and all of its rights remain for him- or herself forever. Even when you download a music album from authorized websites, you won’t be the owner of the aforementioned music album and, therefore, you’re not allowed to add its music to your video clips for publishing on social media. Even, if you purchase your favorite music track from legal websites like iTunes, you won’t be its owner. It’s true that you can listen to it anytime you like, but this doesn’t mean that you can share it with somebody else. There are two solutions to this problem:
- For creating your desirable videos, you can use Royalty-Free (one-time paid fee) music tracks (Namely, you can use music tracks without copyright and the content originator has announced that everybody can publish and share her or his artistic works freely). In this case, you just download the music track and can do anything you like with it and none of the YouTube or Instagram platforms will warn you or remove your content.
- You can use music tracks whose originators have allowed the use of his or her music tracks, but, also, have ordered the publisher to mention his or her name (You should mention the name of the music track and its creator in the Instagram caption part or the description box of YouTube platform. Otherwise, if the music track creator files a complaint against you, Instagram and YouTube platforms will remove your videos easily and if you repeat your illegal work, the aforementioned platforms will inactivate your page.
