TYPES OF MEDIA (GREATEST TO LEAST RISK)
NOTES
36
Foreign and International KPOP, JPOPmany have US-based record labels, highest chance of DMCA outside of red category
37
Semi-popular Youtube videos without agency or record representationcould be copyrighted later, and you CAN be struck for things in the past
38
Music that shows no "copyright attribution" on YoutubeEXAMPLE: https://imgur.com/a/PTYCF8Dif you see this on the bottom of the Youtube Info section - it is copyrighted, do not play these can be retroactively claimed
39
Low-fi, chillwave, independent youtube playlistsyou can still get DMCA'd for these, but it's unlikely
40
41
BELOW THIS POINT - CHANCE OF DMCA PROBABLY FAR, FAR LESS THAN 1%
42
Classical Music & Music before the 1900ssome is public domain - some isn't, do research
43
Video game music almost 100% ok - automated bots can't tell the difference between in-game and out of the game
44
Indie artists, small youtube channels, independent artistsmany indie artists are available via email! they love exposure and will give you permission! if you ask
45
46
Level 3: 100% OK TO STREAM / YOUTUBE
