I want to use a certain song as a background to my voice in one of my videos, the description box below that video tells that song is Licensed to YouTube by "some company' Buy it now on Google Play !
My question is, if i bought that song from google play, will i have the right to use it in my videos? No copyright claim will come?

Thanks for your reply.
Just out of curiosity, why would anyone buy a song to listen to it, if he’s already listened to it on youtube?!

1. It has much better sound quality.
2. You can listen to the song when offline.
3. You can support the artists you like so that they can actually continue to create new music. If people only listen to artists on YouTube or Spotify, very few artists, if any, will earn enough to do music full-time.

My situation is that I put a video up to be for streaming  and it was never published, taken down and came with some unsettling scolding message talking somethin about ‘1st warning’ and ‘deceptive’ or ‘misleading video’... all I know is that it was a video of a popular scratch master artist and I had and have 100% permission from him and can prove it, and quite frankly I’m offended by the assumption made without the benefit of proper consult before rendering such penalty punish judgement AND I wrote instantly to YouTube about the matter and have not to my knowledge been contacted nor vindicated.. whassup with that?
