Yes! By signing up for our Creator's Program, connecting your channel, and providing credit links for the songs you use - we can monitor your videos and automatically release any future claims on videos that use our music so you can monetize your work. Feel free to check out this guide for crediting the music used in your videos.
You can use any of the songs found on your Creators Dashboard. If a track is not available on our Creators Dashboard, then you may not use it.
Once you are logged-in to your account, you will gain download access to our songs on the Creators Dashboard. You can also stream the music directly from the Dashboard or download the songs to your computer and create an offline playlist.
After you download the music file from our creators page, a credit which includes a song title, artist, and link will appear. Simply copy this in your Youtube video description before publishing the video and you're good to go! For full instructions, check out this page.
On Twitch, you must create a channel panel with one of our crediting images (there's an editable template at the bottom of this album. That image must be formatted to link to this URL: https://chillhop.ffm.to/creatorcred. And here's a step-by-step guide you can follow, as well!
Yes, as long as you follow our crediting rules, you are allowed to monetize your videos and stream. Please keep in mind that this type of license does not cover music use in commercial videos (videos with the sole purpose of advertising or selling a product). For example, if you were creating an ad with our music as a soundtrack, you would need to secure a paid license.
If for some reason our YouTube system did not see a credit provided on a registered channel's video, or if the credit was accidentally missing when video was first published, you may receive a claim on your video - but this can be quickly released by doing the following two steps:
(1) Copy and paste the correct credit(s) into your video description, and then...
(2) 'Dispute' the claim on YouTube.
Our system will re-check your video to make sure the credit + link has been posted in the description and release the claim! :)
No, using our Spotify or Apple Music playlists as a source of music for your Youtube/Twitch livestreams is not permitted as 1. this would violate Spotify/Apple Music TOC and 2. our Spotify and Apple Music playlists often feature songs which don't belong to our record label.
We hold all the rights to our music and our music is not royalty-free. We allow creators to use our music as long as our music receives the mandatory credit. If this does not happen, we take appropriate action to make sure our rights are enforced.
No, we do not permit anyone to create new music works using our original songs. This means that it is not allowed to sample, edit, remix, add lyrics or alter the original compositions in any way or form.
No, uploading our music directly on your channel is not permitted. If you happen to run a music-oriented channel, please send us a message and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Please do not use our music to create your own 24/7 music stream. If this happens, it will be taken down.
No, the use of our artworks and logos is strictly prohibited.
In case you receive a claim although you have followed our crediting guidlines, please contact us and we will quickly resolve the issue.
At the moment, the Creators program enables you to use music on YouTube or Twitch only. We are looking for solutions that would let the creators use our music on other platforms such as Instagram, Vimeo, etc.
No, we're only asking for the minimum credentials required to read which videos you have uploaded on your YouTube channel so we can monitor if videos that use our music are meeting our crediting guidelines. For Twitch, we need your username to do the same thing, and your email in case we need to contact you.
