“Video” (Used 70 times)

Just a friendly reminder.
We know, the FMA is a great resource for all sorts of people - filmmakers, remix artists, people who wanna hear strange new sounds - but we've been getting a LOT of messages lately from confused people about whether or not they can use X song in Y video.
It depends on the license, and how you intend to use the music, my friend! And best of all, you can find out all the information you need on your own. There are tons of resources out there to help.
We have a robust FAQ (complete with webinar!) about which licenses are suitable for video here. But here are some basics:
1. ND or No Derivatives: If you want to use a track from FMA for a video, you are not allowed to use anything with an "ND" or "No Derivatives" clause in the license. You must get further permission from the artist in order to use it for a video.
2. NC or Non Commercial: If you want to use a track for commercial purposes (including a monetized YouTube video, a real estate listing, or a video telling people about a product or service that costs money), anything with a "NC" or "Non Commercial" clause is not pre-cleared for this type of use. If you want to use it for a commercial purpose, you must get further written permission from the artist, and possibly pay for a license to use the song.
3. SA or Share Alike: If you want to use a track that is licensed CC BY-SA "Share Alike" or CC BY-NC-SA, you are required by that license to share your own work under the identical license. If you can't, or don't want to, do this, you must get further written permission from the artist. (Noticing a pattern yet?)
4. BY or Attribution: Anything with a CC license with "BY" or "Attribution" in it means you must give credit to the artist, but that's it. You can use it for whatever you want, even derivative works like videos and remixes. If you don't want to, or can't give attribution in your derivative work (such as a video)... guess what? You have to get further permission from the artist! (Now you're getting it!)
We have pre-screened a lot of stuff and it's tucked neatly in the Music For Video curator page (though this includes NC and SA tracks - so make sure to look for the license you need). You can also use stuff from our Public Domain collection without attributing or getting permission from the artist.

Hey FMA fam!
I'm stoked to announce the release of more than 40 LGM tracks under an Attribution 3.0 license. That's 2 hrs and 51 minutes of mostly chilled instrumental beats (Future Shapes is more EDM) perfect for syncing to media or just listening to. All unreleased, and from the abyssal depths of my hard drive, I figure these do no good sitting around when there are people out there in need of new music. Hopefully I can empower you with these songs.
Lookout for albums Future Shapes, Simplify, The Age of Insignificance and The Jewel and Me to check it out.
For licensing beyond creative commons get in touch and we can work something out. I also have a ton of experience in custom scoring so if you are in need I can help with that as well. Check out my website to see some of the projects I've worked on.
Enjoy! (and theres more on the way :)

We first met Thulebasen at the Festival of Endless Gratitude and were blown away. Their heavy experimental and psychedelic sound has given them a serious rep in the underground music circuit and among those who have been lucky to the see them live. But what also really impressed us is the video art. Awesome videos put out by the label Tambourhinoceros. Raga Gemini and the 18 min Felaia are real odes to joy. Check out also Monster and Forever Grinning on YouTube.

Many thanks to Gillicuddy and Derek Clegg for their beautiful music which I used in a recent mountain biking video: https://vimeo.com/111601129.
