Integrating or sharing music hosted by an online music platform
Type of use
Integrating and sharing musical content hosted on a legal platform for on demand, interactive, semi-interactive, non-interactive streaming or download. Think of sharing a song hosted by YouTube on Facebook, integrating a Spotify player in your blog, or integrating a Vimeo player on your web site.
What To Do
- If you are not using the content for commercial or promotional purposes, you don’t need to do anything specific.
- If you wish to exploit this content for commercial or promotional purposes, please refer to the other sections of this site.
Here are a few examples of music uses that are NOT personal, non-commercial and non-promotional:
- integrating music through the use of YouTube or Spotify players on company web sites, sponsored blogs, etc.;
- using music to promote, directly or indirectly, a product, a business, an individual, etc.;
- using music in a video whose views could generate any form of monetization.
Clarifications and cautionary statement
If your use is strictly personal, you don’t need to do anything since those online music services already have agreements with the rights holders.
In the case of a video that will only be monetized on a platform that includes a copyright management system such as YouTube and its Content ID, it is possible to obtain the required permissions directly through the uploading interface.
