We will talk about each of them in detail later on.
But we anticipate that all of them are platforms with royalty-free music, a factor of great importance.
The importance of music copyright on the Internet
You may be asking yourself, why should I consider copyright when looking for music for my presentations? Why is it so important?
Copyright is, by definition:
“The rights of a personal and patrimonial nature that attribute to the author the full disposition and the exclusive right to exploit his work without any limitations other than those established by law”.
In short, it can be said that the author of a musical track is the only one who can use his work.
Any other person or entity wishing to use the musical track must reach an agreement with the author or, alternatively, with the PROs -Performance Right Organizations-.
In most cases, a considerable amount of money must be paid to the PROs to obtain a temporary license that allows the use of the song under certain conditions and for a set period of time.
What does this mean? It means that:
You cannot use just any song in your presentations or videos.
If you use a copyrighted song in your productions, you must pay the amount requested to use it legally.
If you do not do so, you will be breaking the law and you expose yourself to severe financial and legal penalties.
Ignoring these three details could cause you serious problems.
This is why we want to highlight the importance of copyright regarding music.
However, it is also important for you to know the following:
You don’t need copyrighted music in your presentations
Acquiring copyrighted music is a time-consuming, complex, and costly process in terms of money, which does not usually compensate video creators financially.
Fortunately, there is an alternative with better conditions: royalty-free music.
This type of music will best meet your needs for your videos and presentations for 4 simple reasons:
Save your money, as it is much cheaper than copyrighted music.
Make you able to choose, since it offers a wider variety of musical styles.
Save your time, since acquiring it is much simpler and faster.
Make you avoid copyright problems.
But where can you find this type of music for your videos?
