Let me ask about watermark rule. I have own website. and I would like to use music from my AJ portfolio on the website. Do I have to include AJ watermark on those tracks? I’m a exclusive author here. My web site is not selling those music.Could somebody tell me how I should do ? Thank you in advance.
Hi Musicrayon, the answer to your question is yes. You are allowed to use your music unwatermarked, as an exclusive author, in your own personal projects if it is not geared towards linking or promoting your AJ portfolio.
As exclusive authors, we’re not allowed to post our tracks unwatermarked on sites like soundcloud and youtube, etc, to link back to AJ. Those must always be watermarked. But if you have your own personal video on youtube, for yourself or friends/family for example, not for promoting your work here, you can use your track unmarked.
So it’s up to you to consider if you want to allow the opportunity for the music you sell to be heard unmarked on your site.Hope that makes things clearer.
Hi ADG3studios Thank you for answer. It is very clear now.
So what happens if some one buys your track uses it on Youtube and then some one steals your track off of that Youtube video and uses it in his/hers video and you happen to find it?
Hi Kurlykovs The things you pointed out could possibly happen in digital world. It is obviously violation of copyright law. But I don’t know what I can do… You better to ask Envato staff. Thanks for problem institution.
