Artlist is very much a leader in the royalty-free music world and now they’ve taken an additional helpful step that will make it even easier for users to find great music for their projects.
Royalty-free music, or as it’s sometimes referred to copyright-free music is music that’s available for a periodic subscription rate that is far far less pricey than looking to use existing hits from mainstream acts.

What is Royalty-Free Music?
Maybe you’re wondering what royalty-free music is, and how it can help you. Well, royalty-free music is essentially the easiest and least expensive way to license music for your projects.
These projects could include film and video projects you are making, from short indie productions to feature films, as well as social media posts or commercial projects. Basically, using royalty-free music will help you to match up your visuals with a great soundtrack.
If you were considering using existing mainstream music for your productions you might want to rethink things. The cost, and hassle, of doing so is likely to blow your entire budget and in all likelihood could lead nowhere.
It’s unlikely that a leading production house of an artist will allow you to use their track unless you pay a very large sum or you happen to be a well-known individual with the ability to make it worth their while.
Royalty-free music is a resource that offers you a near-infinite amount of great musical output for a simple one-off, inexpensive, payment. This secures you a license to use the track as you wish.
The additional benefit of this service is the sheer range of what they have available, meaning you’ll always find something that perfectly fits your vision and your goals.
Can’t I Just Use Whatever Music I Want?
Well…no. Not unless you want to be the recipient of a massive fine or even imprisonment. If you want to use mainstream music without permission, then you should be fully aware that the chances of falling under the radar are slim to none.
Anyone who has, for instance, used an existing track on a social media post by accident, will tell you that retribution is swift. All major music publishers use technological tools that can easily track down the use of their material in any form you might care to attempt.
This means that within seconds you could be the subject of a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) notice, and that’s when the fun really begins. First, your social media page will be taken down, if that’s where you used the track. If you’ve used it on a commercial project or a film then it’s likely you’ll receive a legal notice that could result in a hefty financial punishment and repeat offenders can receive a custodial sentence.
