Royaltyfreetube Update: Important Licensing Changes & Credits Information

Understanding Our Licensing

Due to the rapid evolution of AI tools and a significant increase in instances of footage misuse, we’ve decided to make changes to our licensing terms. As of August 11, 2023, we will no longer be offering content under the CC BY 4.0 license. Instead, we will revert to the CC BY 1.0 license for all future uploads.

It’s essential to note that any content acquired under the CC BY 4.0 license before this date remains under that license and its associated terms. This change will not affect those who have already used our footage under the 4.0 license.

We felt this change was necessary due to the many cases where individuals have either failed to provide appropriate credit or have misrepresented our content as their own. We thank you for understanding and urge all users to familiarize themselves with the specific licenses attached to each video to ensure proper use.

Free Animations and Copyright Concerns

Absolutely, a majority of our animations are free. However, they do require the correct credits/attribution. Now, you might wonder, will using our content land you in copyright trouble on platforms like YouTube? The simple answer is: if you don’t adhere to the terms of use, there’s a possibility of receiving a copyright strike. So, always stay informed.

Diving Deeper into Terms of Use

Each video comes with a specific license outlined in its description. We can’t emphasize enough how essential it is to familiarize yourself with these licenses:

How to Credit: Making it Clear

Navigating the world of credits can be tricky. For platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, and others, you can easily link to our Youtube channel or any other social media profiles. Simply writing “Animation by Royaltyfreetube” in your video description does the trick. On the other hand, for platforms like Twitch, where descriptions aren’t as prominent, we recommend adding the credit either in your profile section or as a clear overlay during your streams.

No-Credit and Premium Options

If you’re looking to skip the credit or need unique licensing terms, we have you covered. Transition over to our premium content on VideoHive, offering a plethora of animations with different licensing provisions tailored for varied needs.

Music Use: A Quick Note

Lastly, a word about music. Unless we specify otherwise, the music in our videos isn’t ours. Always double-check permissions or licenses before using any music in your endeavors.

Remember, understanding and respecting licensing terms fosters a nurturing community for creators. Let’s keep the ecosystem thriving together!
