Can you use Audio Library files off YouTube? 1 Recommended Answer 7 Replies 71 Upvotes

Can I use Non-Attribution Audio Library tracks off YouTube in other media content i.e. podcasts and post them outside YouTube? I got permission from a track's original creator, but he has informed me that YouTube owns the rights and I would have to check with them. According to the Audio Library policies:

By downloading music from this library, you agree that you will not:
  • Make available, distribute or perform the music files from this library separately from videos and other content into which you have incorporated these music files (e.g., standalone distribution of these files is not permitted).
  • Use music files from this library in an illegal manner or in connection with any illegal content.

I am not using these tracks separately, but want confirmation so that I don't have my podcast in jeopardy later on.

I thought so too, which is why I asked the original creator, but he explicitly told me that YouTube owns the rights to the music and that they have final say on all uses of it, which is what brought me back to square one. 

That being said, I will give it attribution wherever I post my podcast episode, but I think I'll use more clear cut sources in the future. I do think it's a great opportunity for YouTube to contribute to wider Internet content and by being vague they're squandering that opportunity.

Why not downloading any media like music and videos

I downloaded a song from You Tube Audio Library, the song was called "Waiting" by David Szesztay. I also gave credit to it in the credit lines at the end of my video. It has since been removed from the YT audio library and I have been hit with song copy write issues and lost monetizing revenue. What happen here?

That normally shouldn't happen. However, if YouTube didn't actually acquire the rights properly (e.g., someone else submitted the music without the actual producer's permission), there is not much YouTube can do. You should contact David Szesztay and ask what is going on.

Thank you, I will try to contact the writer and composer of this song, but don't even know how to begin that process! Appreciate your quick response, and this is not the first time an "official" YT song has backfired on me with YT somehow discovering it and removing it from their free-library. Have a great day!

Thanks for the quick reply to my question, it was much appreciated! This is not the first time I have had an "authorized/official" free YT song removed without my being aware of it which caused a copy write issue on my channel. I will try to contact the song writer/composer but I don't even know where to begin that process! Thanks for your timely answer and help, have a great day!
