5. Sometimes on YouTube I see a warning about probable copyrighted music content.
This warning isn't a real copyright issue. It is a technical issue and you can ignore it.

All the contracts/agreements between "zero-project" and partners who represent sites, services, shops or companies that are publishing "zero-project" musical works for free or under payable options, are non-exclusive.
