Note on music for your podcast

You cannot use

You cannot, even in short samples and bursts, use an commercial music in your podcast. None.

No Lady Gaga, no Beyonce, nothing, not even playing in the background in a coffeeshop as you interview someone.


You can use

What you can use is podsafe music from  http://www.musicalley.com/  if you register as a podcast producer.


You can also use public domain music (older classical music, folksongs etc.) provided the performance is also public domain. You cannot, for example, use Glenn Gould's performance of the Goldberg Variations just because Bach's work is in the public domain.


You can also use non-label band music provided the group is not doing cover songs and that they give you written (email) permission to use the music. Save that email. In the case of bands that give permission you must mention the band and song with a link in your shownotes and verbally in the podcast itself. Credit where credit is due.


You can also use any music you create and perform yourself provided it is not a cover song and provided you are using samples/tracks that are public domain or license-free (like the tracks in Garageband).


Hope that's clear. If you have any doubts, ask me.
