Legal Music for your Vids

Excellent post by Christina Fox from last year on where to find legal music for your videos.

There are a bunch of sites where you can find good music you can use for free in your video. Some like ccMixter are community sites with loads of composers brought together, others are run by individual composers and artist who want to get their music out there, by any means, to get some publicity. 

Pretty much all these sites licence their work under the creative commons licence. There are four types of licence, which you can read about on the Creative Commons site

Mostly you'll find these composers will let you use what ever you want – however you want. All you need to do is give them a credit at the end of your video. But, do check which licence each composer is using to release their work.

So where to start? Here
