Hey Folks,

I'm just wondering, if any of you have produced promotional videos for your clothing lines, businesses, etc, and if so, what did you do in terms of music?

I know there are a good number of copyright free tracks out there, but the majority of the popular songs / songs that work with the niche our line is trying to brand towards are owned by record labels, and as such copyrighted.

My question is, would it be possible to use a song on a Youtube video with one of these songs from the record labels on it? The video would obviously not be for profit, merely for promotional purposes. Also, we would include the "We do not own the rights to this song, copyright is held by..." etc to the description, as well as links to the artists pages.

Would this be acceptable from a legal stand point do you think?

Thanks in advance

I explored this music site(CreativeCommons) to find a track for my banner printing video. You can see the video with a track from that site here. Different song there have different stipulations on using the music but it is a great resource.

Usually on that Creative Commons site they want you to display credits in your video for the artist but some stipulations can vary so you want to check out the permissions for the track you intend to use.
