2-Using music that is not royalty-free, even if you have purchased it legally.

3-Using music that has been flagged by YouTube’s Content ID system as copyright can result in your video being blocked or monetized by the copyright owner.

That’s it for our top 10 copyright-free sources for uploaded music on YouTube and some things to avoid when uploading music. 

This helps you find the perfect music for your YouTube videos without copyright issues.
