If you’re taking a video production course you may find yourself in need of a soundtrack. As you’ll soon learn, using copyrighted music from your iTunes library isn’t legal, unless you are willing to pay hundreds to obtain permission from the artist. That’s where stock music comes in. Stock music is royalty-free, so that means you won’t get sued for using it or have your video taken down on YouTube. And if you ever decided to sell your video or broadcast it on TV, you’ll be able to. Stock music can cost anywhere between $1-$200 per track depending on where you go, but, I’m sure you’re more interested in where to get it for free:
Kevin MacLeod is the sole artist at incompletech.com who is giving away nearly 100 tracks for free. He has licensed his works with Creative Commons so all you need to do is give him credit and you have his blessing.
