I'm new here and just signed up today. I was approached from a friend asking if I could create a short cartoon animation about termites for his pest control site. I was wondering what would be the legality of using some sound fx like door closing, restaurant ambience, gravel walking. stuff like that. I tried reading the creative commons and but got confused on the way.
If the animation is an advertisement using sounds from this site is a no-no ...
You may not use this work to advertise for or promote anything but the work you create from it.http://www.freesound.org/legal.php
If you contact the creators of the Freesounds you want to use and obtain their permission for use in an advertisement that would be OK.
