First, a rant... When we get our articles stolen blind; nary a cop or prosecutor, or other government official to be found. Stealing music, however, people get thrown in jail all the time. Why is that? OK, rant concluded.
Having no idea where the person who made that video got the music, I'd be leery. True, Beethoven and Chopin don't give a damn, but the performers might.
All I can suggest is:
1. If not already known, somehow find out the composer/title of the piece(s) you want to use.
2. Then do a search for: public domain classical music. With any luck, you'll find a public domain performance of it somewhere.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.
Update: I'm listening to it right now. I just realized there's modern composers in there. Hopefully, the public domain search will save the day.
Because the people who own the rights to the music are generally wealthy and have teams of lobbyists who can help influence policy and the law, and lawyers who can help enforce it.
I asked if I could (thought that it might be in the public domain given that it was on Youtube) Whether rich or poor, I'm really not into stealing other people's work. Thanks, I'll use your suggestions.
Thanks WA, I will. I found the music really beautiful. The valley of the butterflies is really beautiful too, and although I did my best with the short video (being an amateur) the background noise distracts from the environment. I think the two would be harmonious.
This might seem like a silly question, but I have to be sure. If I pause, for example, a Tom and Jerry episode and take a screenshot (because, let's say, I want to have a picture of Tom chasing Jerry in my hub), is it...
As some of you may know, I write nontraditional hubs. I pull in what I would consider ok traffic from outside Hub ( 2k a week average) but I am only making 30 cents a day on adsense anymore and very little on ebay. Now...
I check out many of the new hubs as they come across my Home page. I'm interested to see how many people use their own original work, how many correctly use and credit public domain photos, and how many are outright...
Hi there, joined HP a little while ago but only just got round to writing my first hub. It is going to be an historical piece but seem to be spending most of my time trying to find who owns copyright to the images I...
