Royalty Free Music and No Copyright Music – Explained and Compared

Did you know that Royalty Free Music is not the same as Copyright Free music? In my latest video I explain the differences.

Sometimes people misunderstand the phrase Royalty Free Music because it is mixed up with Free or Copyright Free. That’s why in my latest video I explain both of these terms. I also give some hints where to find music and how to make sure that music is really free to use in you projects. If you like the video feel free to drop a comment and subscribe to my channel.

The term Royalty Free Music is confusing for many people while searching for music. Royalty Free refers to creative assets which are free of recurring fees (so called Royalties). That said, it is important to understand that Royalty Free downloads may still have a price or license fee.

Other music may be offered as copyright free music or no-copyright music, which is also misleading because any creative asset has an creator who owns the copyright as long as there is no other contract or license.
