Hi everybody,


few days ago I have uploaded on Youtube a video containing a music taken from Soundtrack Pro (fc studio2).

I have received an email from YouTube stating that

"your video may include contents that are property of IDOL, but it is still available on YouTube. Sometimes there may be some advertising besides your video".


What should I do?

Is Soundtrack music free from royalties?

Why YouTube sends me such an email?


Thanks a lot for you help.

    The audio elements in Soundtrack Pro are royalty free when used in your own composition. The Apple license says so.


    It may be that someone has composed a track that uses the same elements in a similar manner and posted it to YouTube before yours.
