During the past couple of months, I’ve been trying out a few new social media sites, including Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. Here’s what I’ve found.
Currently, there are about 150,000 royalty free tracks available on TikTok. This allows for a more versatile use of music than other platforms. However, users must ensure that they have the correct license to use the songs they want.
If they do not, they may get a cease and desist letter from PRO. This will likely prompt TikTok to remove any illegal videos. Fortunately, it is not too late to take the necessary steps to make sure that your music is legal.
If you would like to use a song that you own, you will need to send license information to TikTok. You can do this through the Creative Center in the TikTok app. You will also need to get rights permissions for any other platforms you plan to use the song on. This is especially important if you plan on uploading the song to another platform.
Many users on TikTok explore the platform through audio. You may want to consider adapting the sound of a trending song for your videos. This can help you reach a larger audience.
