The last article here started a series on sound effects library copyright questions. That post gave an overview of how copyright works with indie sound fx libraries and the pros that use them.
Of course, sound effects can be used in hundreds of ways. Do these rules apply to sounds used in theatre? What about a non-profit project? Every situation is different, and this naturally creates confusion.
I’ve received so many questions about copyright on Airborne Sound that I thought it would be helpful to share questions and answers from people who visit there.
So, today’s article is designed to help you understand how to use sound effects in your projects, and protect you from copyright issues.
There are four questions today:
- Can I use video game sounds in my project?
- Can I use sounds a friend purchased in my project?
- Can I download and re-edit a sound, then sell it?
- Other sound fx copyright questions and answers.
