  1. I'm not brave enough to blog and put myself out there. But I was always interested in music in yt videos. Some youtubers just credit the artist and song (either in the video or below bar) but some don't. Is there a right way to do it (like complying with yt rules and whatever the music company/ musician[s] wants)? And are there licences or royalties involved? Just wondering. If anyone can answer then thanks in advance.

    1. Let's say there is the legal and courteous way to do and then there's all the other ways (or "non-ways" that people do it).

      Any music created by an artist can be (and usually is) copyrighted, meaning that you need to be granted permission to use it in your own projects. This may also vary between personal projects (like a home movie) versus a commercial project. You can buy a license to use a piece of music, this either allows you to use it for commercial purposes or even to use it without explicitly crediting the musician etc.

      On the other hand, there are some very generous musicians out there who have put their work up for sharing without the need to buy a license. Usually all that they ask is that you credit the music to them somewhere in your project which most people would be happy to do in exchange.

      Now for those who use music but do not credit, then they have either paid for a special license or are just hoping that the artists/companies don't care enough to sue them for it.
