Factors to consider before using a track for video background

There are factors that you should consider before using a track for video background including the legal rights of that sound. Since it is ridiculous obtaining copyright for every track we add on our videos background, it is therefore preferable to use free background music. Here are some ways to do that.

1. Creative Common Licenses

This is a platform designed to make artists around the globe share their work with the public and maintaining copyright. Some will allow you to share, but ensure you credit the owner, others will allow you to use the piece but provide the same license as owners.

2. Stock Audio

Here you will have to buy the license of the music you want to use. However, this needs lengthy legal agreements.

3. Pay-Per-Use

If you need a certain unique or specific sound, you will pay for using it. Price depends on the duration to use.

4. Public Domain

You are free to use a composition after 70 years of an artist’s death, however classics are exempted.
