As a (music/video) creator, you are always looking for the best way to present your digital creation, and part of that is through video and music. When uploading videos (with audio) to platforms like YouTube, you have to take into consideration if your video uses original media or from other sources. Video platforms like YouTube will actively scan & remove copyrighted audio and you might receive a copyright strike to your channel. If you receive 3 strikes, your channel will be blocked.
To help you choose original and non-copyrighted audio, read the tips below.
Use original media
Avoiding any (copyright) issue is very easy. Just use your own original media; video and audio. Record your own video and use original audio. In this way, you will never experience any copyright issues.
Know your sources
As mentioned above, using original media is highly recommended. If you are not sure if the media you want to include is copyrighted (most have), try to contact the creator/owner. If you do not have permission to use the media in question, do not use it in your project!
