Free music – Frequently Ask Question

What do I do if I have a copyright claim on Youtube or Facebook?

Youtube & Facebook uses recognition software that scans the music in your video to see if you used copyrighted material. We do not register our tracks in this system so if you have a claim it is whether a “false positive” (the software is wrong) or that someone tries to steal our free music.
Please do the following:

  • Contest the Claim! Do not remove your video. If Facebook warns you may be using copyrighted content, choose to upload your video anyway.
  • When Youtube ask you for a reason check: “I have a license or written permission from the proper rights holder to use this material”
  • In the comments put a link where you have downloaded the track. If you have bought a license attach your license certificate.
  • Contact us with all the details about the claim: track title, composer, name, company, a label that has registered the track. This way we can do something from our side.
