YouTube: Frequently Asked Questions


YouTube is asking for an ISRC. What is that?
ISRC numbers listed on each track are unique identifiers for that recording. If you don't have a use for this number - don't worry about it. Some people need them. For example - if someone challenges your claim to use my music - claiming that they own the rights, you can respond with this number to show where the track came from. Here is the list of all allocated ISRC numbers of tracks on this site.

Should I Include the ISRC Number on the form at YouTube where it asks for an ISRC Number?
You might be able to enter the ISRC making sure you remove the dashes (-).

Is this music free to use?
Yes. An optional donation of $5 per piece used is suggested - and highly appreciated. You do NOT need a PayPal account to make a donation! Just a credit card.

Can I use this music in the YouTube partner program?
Yes. Please use my music to make money on YouTube. Just make sure my name is either in the credits of the piece or in the "more info" section associated with your video. Simple, simple.

Do I have to use the Creative Commons license YouTube offers? Or can I use the standard Youtube license?
You can use whatever you want. It is your content. As long as you fulfill the credits portion of my license, you can do whatever you want. YouTube's licenses are not related to licenses offered on this site.
