Hi,
I have a small business and i am currently preparing some videos to share them in social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn) and YouTube and to promote them. Is it allowed to use your music (with attribution) for free in my videos in this case.

Using music for free also means that you should inform yourself a little. So you have two options:

1. wait for an answer (which you probably won't get)
2. read the FAQ: filmmusic.io/faq

The FAQs exist for one reason: because everyone always asks the same questions.

I found the answers:
(Question) Is the creative commons music on Filmmusic.io free? Also for commercial purposes?
(Filmmusic Answer) Yes, the creative commons music is free, also for commercial purposes - IF YOU MAKE ATTRIBUTION. On our platform you will only find creative commons music published under licenses that allow commercial use. The only condition for the use is that you make attributon - more information can be found in each download window. If you don't want to or can't name the author, you can buy a lifetime extended license for the song. In addition you often get more files and a download in Wave format.

According to this: I can use by making an attribution. But sometimes we should double check and that is what i am doing.

The reason that i specified the platforms is that some artists sometimes say: You can use on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Linkedin but you can not use on YouTube (even though i read the terms).

If you talk about CC music (like the music on this platform), video platforms can not be excluded by any artist.

Fortunately not all 10.000 visitors, which this website has daily, want to check double in the forum :D

I read all FAQ Page.
As i mentioned above, i just want to double check.
Not all are lawyers to understand perfectly Terms of Use.
So by summarizing, in my case, can i use for free your music for my small business videos (where i attribute you).

Now i understood that i can use.
The last question that i can not find: Can i sponsor those videos on social media?
