Music Usage FAQ
Can I use your music in my podcast?
Yes, please! All original songs on scottandrew.com are "podsafe." You're free to include them in your podcast or internet radio show as long as you abide by the terms set down in the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.
The license applies only to songs I've written and/or own the copyright. It does not apply to cover songs or audio files at other sites that I happen to link to (for example, other artists I think are cool).
Also, send me a link to your podcast so I can add it to the list on the left. :)
What does the CC license allow me to do?
Here's a summary of the license rules:
- No commercial use - please don't use my songs to make money without asking first. I'm broke enough as it is. See "commercial licensing" below.
- Provide attribution - a link to this website and verbal props during the podcast will do fine.
- Share alike! - all remixes/mashups must be released under the same CC license.
The license provides no warranty of any kind. So exercise caution. Please read the license summary completely before you begin using the songs.
In addition, please contact me first if you'd like to use my music in any project with a political or social campaign or concern.
Can I share the MP3 files on this site?
Yes. Filesharing and P2P are here to stay, so the same terms that apply to podcasting and internet radio above also apply to filesharing. You're free to distribute my songs as audio files on your favorite P2P system. Please don't remove or change the ID3 tags on the files, as they contain links to my website.
What about my student/amateur film? Can I use your music there too?
The same terms that apply to podcasting and internet radio above also apply to student and amateur film projects. If you get lucky and land a big-money distribution deal, please contact me about commercial licensing (see below).
Do you do commercial licensing?
If you're interested in using a song in a commercial work (TV, professional film, advertisements, for-profit broadcasting), please contact me and we'll work something out.
