I did post a link to the Creative Commons site.
Also I'm not the only person to use Josh Woodward's music. As much as I hate to say it, YT's "review" process (all monetized videos are supposedly "reviewed") is unfairly biased towards the big guys. I saw a Charles Trippy vlog the other day where his wife was in a car with Michael Jackson playing in the background and people like Philip DeFranco regularly sit in the fringe grey area of fair use (not to mention Ray William Johnson, who actually uses videos uploaded by other people, and I'm sure he doesn't take the time to personally ask if he can use the video. I'm sure that a lot of the video usage he does the person themselves would actually hate.)
Creative Commons was created to make it easier for people who have the desire but don't have the means to actually obtain a license on a per use basis (those things can get ridiculously expensive, ask TeraBrite on their legally released cover of Taylor Swift's Safe & Sound).
