Is there a Songsmith creative commons license link? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a Songsmith creative commons license link so that I can use Songsmith created songs for monetized YouTube videos? This is assuming of course that I am using my own original melodies? I need to "prove" to YouTube that I can use an original song created using Songsmith in my original videos so I can monetize it.  ... or does Microsoft actually restrict use of original songs created with Song smith for commercial purposes?

  • Since we don't put any licensing restrictions on what you make with Songsmith (for example, we don't say that you *have* to release anything under a certain license), and because we can't control what users put *into* Songsmith, we don't make any statements about the copyright status of what you make with Songsmith. 

    So the best statement we can make is:

    "If the melodies are yours, then the accompaniment you create with Songsmith is also yours.  In other words, Microsoft doesn't keep any copyright or ownership over your Songsmith creations."

    Feel free to link to this forum post if that helps.
