What is Royalty Free Music?
Royalty free means that you can use the music for your own projects without the need to pay royalties. It does not mean that the music does not cost anything. For using royalty free tracks you will need to buy a license that grants you the right to use it in your productions.
Can I use the Music in my videos on Youtube?
Yes. As long as you buy a legal license you can do everything with the tracks that is specified in the licenses terms.
Can I monetize Videos that use royalty free music?
Yes. As long as you buy a legal license.
What does non-exclusivE Licensing mean?
For the moment I provide only non-exclusives licences. This means: When you buy a licence for a track it is possible, that someone else might buy and use that same track.
I used one of your tracks on youtube and got a copyright/content id claim?
Don’t worry as long as you bought a legal license you are in the right to use the music! Contact the marketplace where your bought the music. In general they should handle the problem very fast.
Why can’t I buy music directly from this Website?
The reason is how the rules for supplying digitals goods (like music downloads) are set up in the EU. I don’t want to go into detail, but for a single composer like me it just to complicated to set up in the right way … So for aquiring a track you will need to buy it on an online marketplace.
Why do the prices for the Music differ on the marketplaces:
This can have multiple reasons, like the size of the library, their own prizing system, the style of song etc … some sites allow manual prizing and I tend to use it sometimes (depending on the share that the site gives me as a composer).
How to properly credit Free Tracks:
Just insert in a way that is clearly visible (e. g. on Youtube you will put this in the video description) the following text:
"Full Title of the Song" by Stefan Harth (www.harth-music.de) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
