TL;DR. Yes, you can use my music without written permission depending on the case. Please read entirely to avoid misunderstoods.



LICENCING



To begin with and explained in a very simple, clear and concise way, all my music is copyrighted. In fact, all music is copyrighted by default unless specified otherwise.


Copyright is very simple: the owner of the material has the right to choose who, where, how and and when someone can use their multimeda (call it music, artwork, video, book, etc). YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED to do anything without the owner's permission.


However, approving or denying permissions for every single case is a slow and tedious process, non-viable if there are thousands of people asking for the same thing, so of course i understand there are cases in which is pointless to wait for a permission.


My rules for allowing you to do something with my music or not can be resumed to: If you are not going to earn enormous amounts of money out of what you are going to do, just go ahead and do it (unless specified otherwise).


That being said, you don't have to ask for my permisssion for the following cases:


  • Background music: i'm ok with my music being used as background music in your videos, just leave credits on the video description including the name of the song, artist name and my website, just that, i don't ask anything else. Take note that some of my songs have Content ID (Youtube/Facebook) so contact me at my email if you need your video to be whitelisted.


  • Rhythm Game Levels: i don't mind if you make a level in osu!, Geometry Dash, P.A. or whatever pop rhytm game you play on your free times. i would actually like to see what's your sight on my music over these games, i also don't mind if you upload a video showing off your level to YouTube or any other video streaming playform. Contact me via email if and only if your earn money from your plays in YouTube, so i could (if possible) split revenue with you or completely whitelist your video from Content ID.


Make sure to check the copyright section of the NewGrounds page of the track for extra exceptions and notes.


If your case doesn't follow the criteria above, it should be discussed via email (somanylynx@gmail.com)

That includes:


  • Remixes
  • Flips
  • Bootlegs
  • Covers


Other rules for specific cases:


  • Live Shows/Festivals: You have no excuse, buy the track you want to use on your live set from my bandcamp page somanylynx.bandcamp.com (unless you are doing a dj mix just for fun, which implies not earning any money at all). You can buy the entire discography with a discount if you will.


  • Label Releases: you should follow the label conditions and copyright.


  • Remixes: due that i'm not the only one owning the copy rights of the track, you should follow the owner of the track's copyright and contact both of us for reupload approval (unless the original owner doesn't mind about reupload approval).


SPECIFIC CASES WHERE I MIGHT NOT ALLOW YOU TO USE MY MUSIC



  • YouTube promo: i won't allow you to reupload my music to youtube for "promo" unless the so called "promotion" you are offering is real. I won't allow you to use my music to grow up your not-copyright-friendly DSG wannabe youtube channel with 100 views per video and 50 subscribers. This situation annoys me a lot, if you dare to reupload my music to your sketchy 10 subscriber promo channel without my permission you will be copystriked with no chance for an appeal.


INFRINGE MY RIGHTS AS ARTIST AND YOU'LL BE KICKED IN THE ASS
