What is "royalty-free"?
"ROYALTY-FREE" is an easy way to license music. This method means that after you have bought a license, you do not need to pay money. You paid once and you can use music for as long as you like. This type of license is so popular.
You can purchase such licenses on special trading floors, such as "Audiojungle" and "Pond5". Terms and prices may vary by site. Most often, the "Royalty-Free" license applies only to one video. For example, if you want to use music in 2 different videos, then you need to buy 2 licenses.
I want to use your music in my video production. What do i need to do?
On my site you can find 4 types of music that I distribute.
1. Royalty Free - This is music that is available for licensing on stock sites such as Audiojungle or Pond5. License costs start at $ 29. You need to buy a license if you want to use music in commercial projects and make money. Commercial projects are projects that will bring you income. For example, movies, paid games, YouTube videos that will be monetized, and other types of commercial projects. If you want to use music in non-commercial projects, then you do not need to buy a license. You can just download my music and use it. On YouTube, you may receive a copyright claim. This is normal. Your channel is fine and your video will not be deleted. This is not a strike. You just won't be able to monetize your video.
Important note: I have stopped making new Royalty Free music. Right now I only create Premium Music and No Copyright Music.
2. "No Copyright" music. This is music for which you will not receive a copyright claim. However, this does not mean that this is completely free music. This does not mean that this music does not have an author. It's very convenient to use non-copyrighted music as you won't get a strike or a copyright claim. You will be able to monetize your videos and you will not have problems or demands from YouTube, Facebook or Instagram.
To use my "No copyright" music, you need to become my patron through the Patreon crowdfunding platform.
Important Note: If you do not want to become my patron, then you need to purchase a license to use my "No Copyright" music. The license is purchased through an order for Fiverr or through payment for Paypal. To request a license, please email me.
3. Premium music. This is music that you can use for free for non-commercial projects, without the ability to monetize your video on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram. If you want to monetize your video or use music in commercial projects, then you need to purchase a license.
How is this different from Royalty Free Music? You cannot purchase a license through stock sites such as Audiojungle or Pond5. The license is purchased through an order for Fiverr or by paying through Paypal. You can also ask to change the music for your purposes. For example, make a short version or remove some instruments.
You can also purchase the track on exclusive terms.
The price depends on the project and your preferences.
4. Creative Commons Music. This is free music that you do not need to purchase a license to use. You can use music for any purpose. You only need to indicate the author of the music in the credits or description in your project.
If I want to make a donation, how can I do it.

I got a claim on my YouTube video. What should I do?
If you receive a copyright notice then you need not worry.
If you want to monetize your video on YouTube:
If you use music available for licensing, then you need to purchase a license. If you purchased a license, then you need to show it on YouTube.
If you don’t want to monetize your video on YouTube:
You do not need to take any action. Your video is in good condition, no restrictions are imposed on it, except for monetization (you cannot monetize your video). Your video will not be deleted.
How do I remove the copyright claims of my YouTube video?
If you want to remove the claim, then you need to buy a license. If Royalty-free licensing is available for this track, then click on the link to purchase a license. Then you need to show the license on YouTube. You can also ask me to remove the claim. (Not available for all tracks.)
