Music Licensing and Understanding Copyright

All music available online is composed and written by somebody and the copyright ownership of that music remains with them. Every music track and sound effect you download will be released under a license that dictates the terms and conditions you must follow when you use the track or sound effect. You must read and understand the license terms of every bit of audio you use in your game and make sure you are using it legally.

The best license to look for are royalty free licenses because they will allow you to use the audio file as many times as you need without ongoing payments. Make sure you are allowed to use the track or effect in games and distribute the game commercially for download and for online playing.
