This is what you need to know if you want to use my music in your content.

Don’t feel like reading? This is the most important stuff:

1: Use my music in your Youtube video’s, even if they’re monetized!

2: You can my music in any other non-commercial product, but make sure to credit me.

3: If you want to use my music in a commercial product, please contact me.

4: You cannot resell my music or claim it as your own.


So in the past I had problems with copyright claims on Youtube for the tracks “Moa’s Song”  and “Clouds” because I licensed them at a third party. However, they have been released from the Content ID system now, so you should get no claims at all if you’re using my music in your videos. If by any chance you do get claims, it’s not done by me. Please contact me in that case so I’m aware about it.

Using my music on Youtube

Bottom line is, you can use my music in your Youtube video’s and you can monetize them if you want. The Creative Commons license that I use for my music is Attribution Non-Commercial (see http://emilevankrieken.bandcamp.com/album/the-aether-soundtrack-music), but I make an exception for monetized Youtube videos. The Attribution also isn’t compulsory, although I’d of course appreciate it if you credit me in the description :)

However, this obviously only goes for videos that contain your original footage (such as Let’s Play’s, a short film or a vlog). You can reupload my music (meaning the video contains just my music and no footage you made yourself) on Youtube only if you do not monetize it, credit me in full and add a link to my Bandcamp account (http://emilevankrieken.bandcamp.com/album/the-aether-soundtrack-music).

If you are a music promotion channel who wants to monetize such videos, please contact me at info@emilevankrieken.com

By the way, this also goes for Vimeo.


 Using my music in other content

Second point: Using my music in your product, such as a game, you will have to follow the license I use. In other words it has to be non-commercial and it has to credit me. If you desire elsewise, please contact me, here on Facebook, on Twitter, or on my email adress (info@emilevankrieken.com). You don’t need to contact me if you follow the license, but I’d love to see what you’re using my music for :)

And finally, and this should be obvious, you can not resell my music anywhere, and you can not claim it as your own.

 

Well that’s all folks! Feel free to ask if you have any further question.
