How to Download Music on You Tune (Audiojungle)?

What does royalty free mean?

Royalty free means you just need to pay for rights to use the item once per end product. You don’t need to pay additional or ongoing fees for each person who sees or uses it.

– Can I use this music in my videos?

To use this music in your videos or media projects, you must first purchase a license from the link. You can then show that you have rights to use the music should you receive a copyright claim or if you plan to monetize your channel. This is very important as it will prevent any possible strikes against your YouTube channel or videos.

Can I use music from AudioJungle on YouTube? Why have I received a “matched third party content” copyright notice via YouTube about AudioJungle music used on my YouTube video?

Yes, you can absolutely use licensed AudioJungle music in your YouTube video.

YouTube takes copyright infringement seriously, and its Content ID audio detection system will occasionally display a copyright notice on videos using licensed AudioJungle music. This typically isn’t a bad thing, it simply means YouTube has found some material in your video that’s owned by someone else. To clear this notice, you simply need to let YouTube know that you have licensed the music and have the rights to use it.

Can I use music in an audio-only end product such as a podcast, audiobook, or guided meditation?

Yes, as long as the audio-only end product is larger in scope and different in nature than the music itself. As a rule of thumb, the music alone must not comprise the primary value of the end product, and should have speech overlayed and interspersed throughout. You can never distribute the music track as-is or with superficial modifications.

Example: You can use a relaxing music background to underscore your guided meditation voiceover recordings, and sell a CD of this to your spa customers.

What is the difference between streaming web video and online broadcast?

Our Music Licenses define Broadcast as:

(a) Traditional television or radio broadcast (e.g. terrestrial, cable or satellite TV, broadcast radio); or

(b) Mobile or online substitutes for traditional television or radio broadcast (e.g. mobile TV, IPTV (streaming TV or video-on-demand), streaming radio)

We consider online broadcast to include online content services which distribute professional, syndicated Broadcast content, such as Netflix, Hulu, or other internet television providers.

Streaming web video is everything else, including videos uploaded to your personal or business website and on user generated content networks such as YouTube or Vimeo.

All of our Music Licenses including our base Standard Music License allow for streaming web video. With Broadcast use however, you’ll need one of our Broadcast Licenses, and there may be limitations on your allowed audience size depending on which one you choose. There are no audience size limitations for non-Broadcast streaming web video.

YouTube Content ID

Buyers Guide to YouTube Content ID & Copyright Notices , What is Content ID? Help

What is Content ID?

Content ID is a popular digital fingerprinting system that content creators can use to easily identify and manage their copyrighted content on YouTube. Videos uploaded to YouTube are compared against audio and video files registered with Content ID by content owners, looking for any matches.

When a video is matched to Content ID registered content, a copyright notice will appear on the video, and the content owner may choose to take certain actions, such as:

  • Clearing the claim and taking no further action
  • Tracking the video’s viewership statistics
  • Monetizing the video by running ads against it
  • Muting the audio that matches their music
  • Or even blocking a whole video from being viewed

What is AdRev?

AdRev (and other companies such as Audiam, TuneCore, etc) are YouTube Partner platforms that use the Content ID system to manage and administer this copyrighted content on behalf of content owners. They in turn provide users with various information such as which videos their content is used in, tracking of unauthorized uses, viewership reports, and distribution of any monetization earnings.

How does this relate to AudioJungle music?

Many online based music composers, including some of those that sell licenses to their music via AudioJungle, have their content digitally fingerprinted via Content ID to help protect against unauthorized uses, and also use these YouTube Partner platforms to administer and manage their content.

We provide license certificates and purchase codes for all purchases on Envato Market, including AudioJungle music, so should a copyright notice appear on a video containing music that is tracked by Content ID, it can be easily cleared and you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

What does this mean for me and my YouTube projects?

When a video is uploaded to YouTube that contains licensed, digitally fingerprinted music, a “matched third party content” copyright notice will appear alongside the uploaded video in the YouTube Video Manager (this typically appears shortly after uploading).

A copyright notice does not mean that copyrights have been infringed, and this shouldn’t be confused with a YouTube “copyright strike”. It’s simply a notice to advise that YouTube has detected Content ID registered content within the video, and that further information/action is needed.

Again, if you’ve licensed the music from AudioJungle, you will be easily able to clear this notice and you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

Why are there ads running on my videos?

When unauthorized/unlicensed use of music is found in a YouTube video, it may have monetized ads placed over it by the YouTube Content ID system. Once you’ve used your AudioJungle license certificate to clear any copyright notices on your video, these ads will go away and you will be able to monetize the video yourself if you wish.

How to clear a YouTube copyright notice

Clearing a YouTube copyright notice is a very straightforward process. You can remove copyright notices in the following ways:

  1. Disputing the claim via YouTube’s built-in form.
  2. If the music is administered via AdRev, using the AdRev Claim Clearance page is the quickest and most direct way to clear a claim.  AdRev will send you an email confirmation once it has been cleared.
  3. To clear a claim via YouTube, you simply need to let YouTube know that you have licensed the music and have the rights to use it. Simply choose to “dispute” the claim by clicking the “matched third party content”copyright notice next to the video in your Video Manager, or on your dedicated copyright notices page. After you click “file a dispute”, select the option “I have a license or written permission from the proper rights holder to use this material”.
