FriendlyMusic Lets You Buy Legal, Licensed Tunes For Your YouTube Videos

You caught your cat, Fiona, doing something positively wacky on video. This thing could go viral! With FriendlyMusic, you can get professional, copyright-cleared music in any genre, suitably for complementing any wacky feline behaviour, for just two bucks.

When you put a video up on YouTube, the last thing you want is to have it blocked by Warner Music Group because you scored it with some Rilo Kiley song from your iTunes library. FriendlyMusic, a new effort by big-time music licensing agency Rumblefish, looks to bring quality, copyright-cleared soundtracks to YouTube videos on the cheap.

Of course, searching their library, you're not going to find that T-Pain song you were looking for, or really any other artist you have on your iPod, but they do have an expansive collection of glossy, well-produced music which you can search by genre or mood.

Once you find something you like, $US2 buys you a lifetime licence to use that song in your video however you like. It might not be quite as recognisable as something borrowed from the Billboard charts, but you'll be able to sleep easy knowing that Fiona doesn't have to worry about the record company cutting her time in the YouTube spotlight short.
