If you’ve read a few of my articles you know I love all things Creative Commons – even music! I have even released ebooks, music and other content via Creative Commons licenses. (Read A Guide to Creative Commons on When I Have Time)
I’ve been using Jamendo.com for several years as a source of creative commons and royalty-free music as inspiration for the videos I make and put online, and it seldom takes me longer than 10 or 15 minutes to find what I’m looking for.
Artists can choose to license their music directly through Jamendo.com and/or ask you, the fan, to donate directly to them what you feel is appropriate. As always, the creative commons license should be respected.
Have you used Jamendo?
Here are some of the videos I’ve made with music from Jamendo and I’ve listed the music credits at the end – click through to the post if you don’t see the videos below:
