A quick guide to Augustana's copyright policy.

Below is a small sampling of resources on the web for finding music and video that are free, in the public domain, or licensed to show the accepted terms of use.

Note that these resources are not all the same. Read the description of each resource carefully, and pay attention to the terms of use and/or licenses as described in the database and on each individual work you want to use.

There are other places to find usable music and video beyond those listed here. As you take your search beyond these resources, continue to look for licenses or explicit terms of use. Remember: copyright automatically goes to the creator of the work under U.S. copyright law, so if the terms under which you can use a work aren't stated, you should assume you cannot use it unless you obtain permission or can clearly demonstrate fair use.
