Rumblefish to sell songs for use in YouTube videos

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Independent music licensing company Rumblefish is giving YouTube uploaders a way to add songs to their videos without infringing on copyrights.

Starting Tuesday, the company will sell songs from its catalog of artists for $1.99. Included in the sale will be a license allowing the video creator to legally use the music in their video forever.

One catch is that the video can't be used to make money. If an uploader wants to make advertising revenue on his video, he'll have to upgrade to a commercial license.

Another catch is that the work of major label artists is not included.

Privately held Rumblefish will be selling the licensed songs at its new website, riendlyMusic.com.
