Music is a vital element in any video. It can make or break the production. Music licensing adds an extra layer of complexity to your video production. You want to be sure that you are using the right music for your project.
What You want in Your Licensing?
There are of course some things that you need to know before you get started with music licensing. To help you out, here are some do’s and don’ts.
- Follow the law
- Ask for permission before posting any of your videos online or on social media
- Check with your school or college about their music policy
- Be aware of copyright laws
- Use copyrighted material without permission
Music licensing is much like a patent in a product. No one can just use your work without your permission.
Licensing, patent or whatnot is important if you want to legalize the ownership you have with your work.
