music credit? Jforthetrueking 12/30/09 8:42 PM
A friend of mine told me that if I give credit to the author of a song in my video description, then I will be able to use the song in my video. He uses this method on youtube all the time, and says it works fine. I want to check with an outside source before using this method, though, so I must ask if I am allowed to do this? Thanks!

Your friend is totally full of it. The only legal way to use copyrighted music is to obtain licensing/permission from the owner.
