Stock music
on Jan 4, 2008 at 3:19:18 am

Hi all.

Let me start by saying that I'm fairly new to the whole digital video scene but I am no stranger to computers including hardware and software. I look forward to using this site as somewhere to buy what I need as well as getting advice from the staff and other users here. I am a firm believer in asking questions to learn and I've got to get a few basic concepts in my head to get sorted out.

I have a couple of small projects upcoming (and I mean very small...photo to DVD type things) but hey - you've gotta start somewhere.

My question is about music, "stock music" in particular, that I can offer a customer. I'm a little overwhelmed with the whole concept of royalty/royalty-free and I certainly want to break no laws.

Where do you guys get your music? Any sites better than others? Any sites to steer clear of?

What if someone wanted a photo slideshow with music by Celine Dion or Metallica? Is there a legal way to include their music on a DVD that I produce without copyright infringement?

These are simple questions I suppose but these are things I need to figure out in order to proceed.

Thanks in advance...

Yes, we use music but don't use copyrighted music. Use programs like QuickTracks or SonicFire, or buyout music to score the video.

Thanks, John.

That's a great article and it helps a lot. I kinda figured part of that, but like I said, I'm new to the whole thing and I'd like to think I'm making an attempt to do the right things.

I'm still learning a lot - so this will be far from my last question Razz


Thanks again!

This is a little late, but digitaljuice.com has royalty free music that can be used commercially. The music is fixed length but you can remove tracks, like the drums or flute or whatever. Check it out.

If your intrested in using Top 10 music check out http://www.zoomlicense.com.
They offer licensing for top 10 music at a great price. You will have to check to see if the song you want to use has been cleared by the Music Labels for Zoom. Fees are just $ 3.50-$ 5.50 per song for a one time sychronization to your video project. Limited to a specific number of copies per project. More details check out the website.

Hope this helps.

HSVideo, Doug
