You know the problem: Uploading music to Youtube or your Twitch channel can result in a takedown. You did not respect the copyright and content id recognized it.

Avoid Takedowns

You’re looking for music you can use on your Youtube or Twitch channel, without a takedown?

The answer is Creative Commons licensed music. You can even monetize your Youtube channel, if you choose the right license.

Creative Commons licenses are modular.
There’s ND for no-derivates,
theres SA for share-alike and
NC for non-commercial.

What license type?

Using music in your video is a derivate. So avoid ND, no-derivates.
Using music in your commercial video? Avoid NC, non-commercial.
Not licensing your video under a Creative Commons license? Avoid SA, share alike.
