Royalty-Free Music

A video isn’t complete without an audio component - and something as small as a catchy intro to your video can help keep viewers watching past the first 10 seconds, boosting your engagement metrics. Using background music emphasizes an emotional moment in your video to create a connection with the viewer. Our unlimited audio library helps you find the perfect royalty-free music, sound effect, or loop to enhance your video.

Did you get a YouTube content ID claim?

Even though our audio content is 100% royalty free and can be used safely in YouTube videos, you may receive a content ID claim. This doesn't mean that you’ll have to take your content down. Just follow these steps to get your video back on track and keep your subscribers happy.


Why is this happening to me?

Long story short, some of our audio can be mistakenly flagged as wrongful use of copyrighted content. With that being said, worry not because there is an easy way to fix this issue and we are here to help you at every step of the way.

Cosa devo fare?

If you received a claim from a video with a Storyblocks Audio clip, you can dispute it, which will allow you to put your video back online to be monetized. We have created a simplified version of YouTube’s claim dispute form that will allow you to resolve claims as quickly and painlessly as possible.

This form is available to all Storyblocks Audio members. Visit our blog post to fill this out to maximize your chances of getting your content back up and running.

Once you submit the claim dispute, we send an auto-generated email to the claimant that includes information needed to get your claim resolved. We are able to remove 95% of copyright claims in less than 72 hours.

Domande frequenti (FAQ)

  • How Does Membership Work?

    Storyblocks provides affordable subscriptions to high-quality stock video, audio, and image libraries. Subscriptions can be purchased separately or include access to all three. Your subscription will provide access to download from our Member Library content.

  • What does "Royalty-Free" mean?

    "Royalty-Free" is a type of license that allows the unlimited use of content for any media projects without having to pay royalty fees. All footage, templates, and motion backgrounds are royalty-free and they are yours to keep forever — even if you don’t maintain your Storyblocks subscription. Use our content to enhance your YouTube channel or social media video.

  • Why am I getting claims on YouTube?

    Our content is 100% royalty-free and you are licensed to use our tracks on both commercial and non-commercial projects worldwide in perpetuity, including YouTube videos.

    That being said, not all of our content is exclusive to Storyblocks. Collection agencies and other companies will often place copyright claims through YouTube's system on videos containing content that matches a third party in order to collect monetization on their behalf. Since our content is royalty-free and licensed to you, the video creator, these claims are erroneous.

  • How can I prevent a claim?

    At this time, there is no way to prevent a claim from happening because there isn't a way to tell whether or not a claim will appear on a video. It doesn't always happen and sometimes you can use the same piece of music in two different videos and get claimed on one but not the other.
