The "Creative Commons Attribution Unported License" is the default license for all the original "zero-project" works. If a work or a collaborative project is released under a different license it is clearly mentioned.


2. Can I use the "zero-project" music in a personal project?
You are free to use the "zero-project" music in your personal project (website, movie, documentary, presentation, game, video, radio, podcast, etc.), as long as you give credits to the artist. Optional credit terms: "zero-project", "www.zero-project.gr" or a link to the official work's page.

You are free to use the "zero-project" music for any professional purpose (advertising, website, movie, documentary, presentation, game, video, radio, podcast, etc.), as long as you give credits to the artist. Optional credit terms: "zero-project", "www.zero-project.gr" or a link to the official work's page. If you need to validate your work with a certification of legal use, please read the paragraph 13. If you want to use the music commercially without giving credits, please read the paragraph 14.


4. Can I sell an original "zero-project" song?
Only if you have a contract with the author that allows selling original "zero-project" music. You can sell a project of yours (game, application, video, service, etc.) that includes "zero-project" music, but you cannot sell the music as standalone product.


5. Can I release a remix of a "zero-project" song?
Only if it is obvious that it is a remix and not a slightly altered version. "Similar" versions on the same platforms (Spotify, iTunes, YouTube Music etc.) may be detected as duplicate content and may be rejected.


6. Can I release a remix of a "zero-project" song, with different title?
If you want to use a different title for your remix, the original source should be clearly mentioned. For example, if the original song is called "Oasis" and your remix is called "Heaven", then the title should be "Heaven - Remix on Oasis by zero-project", or something like that.


7. Can I release a copyrighted remix of a "zero-project" song?
You can't release a remix which will be copyrighted, will use Content ID or any fingerprint technology.


8. What will happen if I release a remix with Content ID?
If you release your remix with Content ID, YouTube will also detect the original song as copyrighted. That means that anyone who already uses the original song in his video will get copyright notices from YouTube. Thank you for playing fair.


9. I use "zero-project" music in my video and I received a copyright notice from YouTube.
If you use original "zero-project" music released under the "Creative Commons Attribution 3.0/4.0 Unported License" you should not get any copyright notices. If you see such a warning, please send an email to info@zero-project.gr.


10. I use "zero-project" music in my videos. Can I earn money from YouTube?
Of course you can. The "zero-project" licensing is very friendly and flexible. The "zero-project" music released under the "Creative Commons Attribution 3.0/4.0 Unported License" does not use Content ID. That means that no one will claim copyright in your videos and you hold 100% of your earnings. If you want to support the artist, you can give credits, you can buy a license to use on YouTube, you can donate a small percentage of your profits or not. It is up to you.


11. I have downloaded a "zero-project" song from another site, service or music store. Are there any copyright restrictions? Are there any other right holders than "zero-project"?
No matter where you have downloaded a "zero-project" song from, the license remains the same. None of the partners holds any exclusive right on an original "zero-project" musical work. All the contracts/agreements between "zero-project" and partners who represent sites, services, shops or companies that are releasing the "zero-project" music for free or under payable options, are non-exclusive. No additional restrictions are set by any partner on the default license of the original "zero-project" music.


12. Can the license of an already released work change in the future?
Any probable licensing changes will not affect the already released works.
