Top 10 Ways to Know If a
Song Is Copyrighted
On Social
Media
e-Definers Technology
• Do you know how to find out if music has a copyright? There’s
so much music out there to enjoy and share. But for creators,
DJs, YouTubers, and even regular listeners, it’s important to
know if a song is copyrighted.
• Using copyrighted songs without permission can cause big
problems like legal issues, fines, or having your content taken
down.
• But don’t worry!
• In this guide, we as a leading digital marketing agency in
Delhi will help you understand song copyrights. We’ll show
you how to make sure the music you love or want to use is
legally okay for what you want to do with it.
Content ID Match
Content ID Match
• Social media websites like YouTube and Facebook have special
programs that check if music in your videos belongs to
someone else. They do this using a system called Content ID.
If the music you use is owned by someone else, these
programs will tell you. You might get a message saying your
video matches’ music owned by someone else.
• This means the music is copyrighted, and you may not be able
to use it in your video without permission. So, it’s important
to be careful when adding music to your social media posts to
avoid copyright issues and follow the rules.

Claims
Manual Copyright Claims
• Sometimes, the people who own the music or their helpers
look for their songs on social media. If they find their music in
your post without permission, they might ask the social media
platform to take down your post. This is called a copyright
claim. They might also make your video quiet or remove it
altogether.
• This happens because using someone else’s music without
permission is against the rules. It’s like borrowing a toy
without asking – you need to get permission first to avoid
getting in trouble. So, it’s best to be careful and follow the
rules about using music on social media.
Third-Party Tools
• Some special tools made by other companies can help you
check if a song is owned by someone else before you put it on
social media. These tools have lists of songs that belong to
others. When you upload a video with music, the tool checks
if it matches any of the songs on the list.
• If it finds a match, it tells you that the music is owned by
someone else. This helps you know if you can use the music
or if you need to find a different song. It’s like having a friend
who knows all the rules about music and helps you follow
them.
Public Domain Status
• Some songs are free for everyone to use because they are
very old or their creators have allowed them to be used by
everyone. These songs are called “public domain.” Before you
use a song in your social media post, you can check if it’s in
the public domain. If it is, it means you can use it without
worrying about breaking any rules.
• It’s like finding a treasure that everyone can share. Just make
sure the version of the song you want to use is really in the
public domain, as some newer versions might still be
protected by copyright.
Creative Commons Licensing
• Some songs are shared with special permissions called
“Creative Commons Licenses.” These licenses tell you exactly
how you can use the song. When you find a song with a
Creative Commons license, you should read the rules that
come with it. They might say you can use the song for free,
but you need to give credit to the creator.
• Or they might say you can use the song for certain purposes,
like personal use but not commercial use. It’s like borrowing a
toy from a friend but with clear instructions on how to play
with it so everyone stays happy.
Official Licensing
• If you want to use a popular song from a famous singer or
music company, it’s a good idea to check if they allow it first.
You can visit their official website or a special platform where
they share their music licenses. These licenses tell you if
you’re allowed to use the song and how you should do it.
• Sometimes, they might ask you to pay a fee or follow certain
rules. It’s like asking permission to borrow a toy from its
owner, and they might say yes if you promise to take good
care of it.
Performing Rights Organizations
(PROs)
• Some groups manage the rights to many songs, like a big
library. They’re called “Performing Rights Organizations” or
PROs. These groups keep track of who owns the rights to each
song. If you’re not sure if a song is copyrighted, you can look it
up in their library. They have a database where you can search
for the song.
• If it’s in their library, it means someone owns the rights to it.
It’s like checking a big book to see who owns a toy – if it’s
listed, you know you should ask for permission before using it.
Royalty-Free Music Libraries
• There are special libraries where you can find music that
you’re allowed to use without worrying about copyright
issues. These libraries offer what’s called “royalty-free music.”
It means you can use the music without paying each time you
use it.
• When you use music from these libraries, you get a license
that says you can use the music in your social media posts. It’s
like having a collection of toys that you can play with anytime
without having to ask permission each time – as long as you
follow the rules set by the library.
Original Composition
• If you make your own music or get permission from someone
who did, you can use it without worrying about copyright
issues. Creating your own music means making something
original that belongs to you. It’s like drawing a picture or
building a toy from scratch – it’s yours to use however you
want, further added by the trainers of a digital marketing
institute in GTB Nagar Delhi.
• But remember, if you use someone else’s music or if they
helped you make it, you might still need to follow their rules.
So, it’s always good to make sure you have permission or that
the music is truly your own before sharing it on social media.
Consult Legal Advice
• If you’re unsure about using a song on social media, it’s smart
to ask someone who knows the rules well. You can talk to a
person who understands the laws about music and
copyrights. They can give you advice on what you should do.
Sometimes, they might suggest you get permission from the
song’s owner before using it.
• It’s like asking a teacher for help with a difficult question –
they have the knowledge to guide you in the right direction
and ensure you’re following the rules correctly, so you don’t
get into trouble.
