Also, it is quite possible to find such composers, producers as well as songwriters for the original commercial music and have a license from them but this method is not an easy thing nor is affordable. For example, this copyright may fall under several parties. The composer would own the compositional copyright to such music, the artist or the performer would own the performance rights to such song and lastly, the record company may also have their hand in the sound recording copyright to such track. Well, to get a license from such parties, you may end up paying a big fee for that music used in the video. However, you must know the affordable option to such expensive and also time-saving process.

The royalty free music or the stock music for YouTube is the most fantastic as well as the cheapest and such is also one legal alternative to such costly custom music or the commercial license options.

This is really essential for popular YouTube and Vimeo creators that depend on the income of their ad which is produced by their channels. A lot of the professional YouTube, Vimeo and also the social media content creators would rely on the stock music to have such high-quality music for their different creative projects.
