Dear Filmmusic.io users,
I've decided to make a change to how music registered in YouTube's Content ID System is presented on Filmmusic.io. From now on, tracks registered in this system will only be found if you explicitly search for them. Here's why:
Music under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC BY 4.0) is meant to be freely used with proper attribution. When such music is registered with YouTube's Content ID, it often flags videos even if the creators have attributed correctly. This can lead to unexpected penalties, like demonetization or copyright strikes.
Additionally, CC BY 4.0 music in the YouTube Content ID System is actually not permitted. See here: https://support.google.com/you...
I believe in the integrity and promise of the CC BY 4.0 license. Therefore, by sidelining tracks in the Content ID system, I aim to protect you from any unforeseen issues and to ensure that you can trust the music you source from Filmmusic.io.
Thank you for understanding and continuing to make amazing content with the music you find here.
I extended the search options with some new filters: https://filmmusic.io/search
- At the front page, new music now onlys show CC BY 4.0 music that is free.
- Same for the categories Genres, Topics, Moods and Charts
