Music Policy Frequently Asked Questions

If you are't using the music in a commercial project, or monetizing, the music is free to use. However:
- If you are uploading to youtube or facebook, you wont be able to use their monetization features to run ads on your videos.
- A note about "copyright music" may appear in your login, but this is NOT a "copyright strike". You can still use the music free, and your account will have no negative impact. This notice is there to protect our music.
- An advert may or may not appear sometimes before your video.
- Please leave a link to our website in your video or project description.
You are using the background music in a commercial sense (Monetizing a video, TV broadcast, film, etc...). A donation is required in order to obtain a commercial-use license. The donation amount is up to you and your budget! Crediting isn't required. YouTubers, please see the second FAQ question below for additional details.
Are there any restrictions on how I can use your music?
Due to copyright conflicts, the music on this site is strictly for non-musical cases. For example, using our music is NOT allowed in the following:
-Your own musical album.
-Any service that adds a copyright to your material. (We don't want the music on this site to be accidentally claimed on your project which includes our background music).
-And the following:
If you are releasing on iTunes, Spotify, or other similar online platforms, you MUST tell your audio distributors the following message:
How would you like to be credited in my video?
If you are using background music from our website or youtube page, you should write in video description or website text the following:
Music in the background from https://www.FesliyanStudios.com
Note: Crediting only required if you have not donated.
I want to monetize an online video with your music. How can I do this without getting a copyright claim?
You must pay for a commercial license (see above questions for details) before uploading video. After donating, a license will be applied to your channel. If your current videos have copyright, be sure to include them in the donation form as well.
Can I use your background music in my project, for free?
If the project you are using the background music in is NOT commercial in nature (making money, selling, promoting a business, etc...), then yes you can use it for free. If your project is commercial, or making profit, donation is required for usage.
I've used your background music for free (non commercial use). Does that mean I am required to donate?
As an independent artist, it's always appreciated, but not required :)
How do I donate to you?
On the menu of this website there is a link that says "Donate" - Simply click there and enter details. After donating, license documents or youtube channel licenses will be provided.
How much does a usage license cost? (How much should I donate?)
We understand that every person or project has a different budget and risk factor. Because of this, we let you decide whatever amount of money you wish to donate in order to get a usage license.
Where can I use the music? Youtube, Facebook, other platforms, etc...?
The music can be used anywhere you want.
Do I have to buy a license for EVERY track? Or can I just buy one license for all of your tracks?
After donating for commercial use, you can use all music commercially on fesliyanstudios.com
I'm not sure if my project will make me money in the future. Can I still use your background music, for free?
In this case, you can use the music for free, but if you end up making money, then you are required to donate at that time.
After I buy a usage license, can I re-use the music in multiple projects?
Yes, the donation covers perpetual use of the music.
What can I expect if I use your music in my video game?
If a Youtuber streams your video game, Youtube might detect our music inside their video. The channel owner may simply have to click on Youtube's dispute button to clear any notes about copyright music.
Can I loop the music, make it longer, speed it up, or slow it down?
If I use the donate button on your website, in what form can I expect the license to be emailed to me?
An official license document and receipt will be emailed to you. If you're using the music for youtube, you'll need to include your youtube channel or video links to us in order to apply the license on youtube's end.
I posted a video online with your background music and I received a copyright claim. Will my video or channel be removed!!!???
If you haven't purchased a usage license from me, YouTube, facebook, etc, is simply notifying you of the background music. Just leave the claim undisputed and you are good to go! If you have purchased a license from me, just send me the video link and the claim will be removed shortly.
What does Royalty Free, really mean?
A royalty free license means that after you obtain a license, you can use a track more than once without paying again.
Can I use your background music for school use?
Yes. School use is free, but if the video ends up on youtube, please see above questions for details on this.
