I dont want ot get copyrighted but im SOOOOOOOOO confused about copyrighting, it seems that big youtube channels dont need permission but non partnered people are copyrighted on the smallest things like background music. is it okay to use a song with no lyrics just music like soothing music or is that copyright too? also how do you prove you have copyright permission to youtube?
