...doing hub work, etc...
Once you get past the obnoxious ad-loads that is. Worth it in this case...
Actually PDS, that's lovely. I want to use it in the background for my Valley of the butterflies video.
Can I do that, and if so, how?
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.
Hollie, the music is written by the person who posted it to YouTube. He has his own web site, which includes full contact details: http://relaxdaily.net/contact/
Why don't you get in touch? For all you know, he might be interested in having a joint initiative together with you, with him providing the music and you the video...
WriteAngled, you are a gem. No joke. Consider yourself hugged.
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.
I'm now taking a walk on the wildside...

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 know that my topics limit me as far a s associated income streams and this is...

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 OK? If it is, how do I mention the source of the image? I read that screenshots...

Is there a website to obtain public domain videos?There are websites to get public domain photos that you can use in your Hubs. Is there a similar website where you can obtain videos? Are YouTube videos considered public domain?

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 would like to use, which are all dated between 1920's and 1950's, and then trying...

Just wondering, is it necessary to mention source link while using photos from search engines. And, if I do will it be beneficial for my hub or not?

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 stealing photos from the Internet.When someone posts a professional looking photo...
