I upload a music video in my YouTube Channel using some of the tracks here. I followed the correct way how to give a music credit. Upon downloading, I see at the bottom of my description:

License: Creative Commons Attribution License (reuse allowed)

Does YouTube put this or FilmMusic? I don't see any copyright claim when I check my account. What does it mean? Is it natural to see something like this? Does it mean I will still get monetized or not?

Hello. Thank you for your response. That is what I did. Regarding the "LICENSE AND RIGHT OWNERSHIP". I always chose "CREATIVE COMMONS-ATTTRIBUTION not the STANDARD YOUTUBE LICENSE.

Regarding of giving a MUSIC CREDIT; I follow the correct way of giving credit here in FilmMusic.

This is the example of what I did:

Music Title: Pure Love Piano
Music Producer: MusicLFiles
Genres: Classical | Piano
Topics: Love | Romance | Meditation | Nature
Moods: Calm |Dreamy | Positive
BPM: 100
Release: 01.10.2020
License: CC BY

Music Credit:
▶️ Pure Love Piano by MusicLFiles
Link: filmmusic.io/song/6707-pure-love-piano
License: creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

Then after uploading it to the Youtube, I will see that at the bottom of the description, there will appear something like this.

License: Creative Commons Attribution License (reuse allowed)

Though, I don't see any copyright claim, but I don't know what this means. Does YouTube put this or FilmMusic? What does it mean if I see something like that in the bottom of my description? Does it mean, the owner of the music permit me to use the music or YouTube allowed me to use but this video won't be monetized?

Actually you should come up with the solution yourself.

But by the way: I ordered a red BMW from the car dealer yesterday. And I was really surprised, because I got a red BMW.

Do you have an explanation why I got a red and not a blue BMW?

Hello Sir. Once again. I know what you mean to say. The reason why I became confuse is because, In some video posted by some creator in YouTube regarding this, they mentioned that If the music owner or YouTube itself allowed me or give me a license for that music or content, permit me to use that music or any content, I won't see any note below in my description like this:

License: Creative Commons Attribution License (reuse allowed)

I try to contact the YouTube creator regarding this. I comment also in his video. I contact the YouTube also and post in their community too regarding this confusion I had, no response, so I end up posting here.

If "CREATIVE COMMONS-ATTTRIBUTION LICENSE" is selected, it is always displayed below the video.This has always been the case on Youtube.

Probably you won't get an answer because nobody understands your problem. It is also possible that everyone thinks that this is just a joke of yours.

I have also thought about whether I should answer you, because the question is already very strange.

When you selected the option 'CREATIVE COMMONS-ATTTRIBUTION LICENSE', you are selecting this for the VIDEO**, not the music track you used from this site. This means that anyone can re-use your entire **video including it's audio under the creative commons license. If this is not what you wanted, you will need to change it to use the standard YouTube license.

If the music has been copyright claimed, then you will receive an e-mail from YouTube saying this. It will also be displayed in the studio part of your YouTube account. If you haven't received an e-mail, and there is nothing shown in your YouTube studio list of videos, then the music has not been copyright claimed.


You have mentioned that you have placed the required text in the description for the music. As long as this matches what this site showed you when you downloaded the file, then you are covered. If you feel that you don't want to (or can't) display the license as offered, then you should purchase an extended license for the track. You should probably do that anyway to be honest.

If you are still unclear, you can visit YouTube's Copyright help page here: support.google.com/youtube/answer/2814000?hl=en&p=c_strike_basics
