    Usage of sounds for University projects


    Hi guys. I'm currently studing on an Animation and Design Course in the UK and I am woundering if it is ok to use sounds from the sight for my course projects. Being new to the sight I'm unsure what to do when it comes to all the legal terms of usage and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice.

    Also what would I need to so if say the sound was to be used for a logo or title sequence as there are no credit scroles for those animations

    If someone could lend me a helping hand here I'd be very greatful.
    Thanks for your time

    At this page you can find the terms of use: http://www.freesound.org/help/faq/
    Look at the Licenses-part of that page.

    When you are not sure you always can send the sound-owner a message.

    For 'my' sounds you can use all my sounds for the course. Thats okey. I hope others will learn freesound that way.

    Good luck at the course an welcome here..

    To hear, you first have to listen

    Hi there,
    At least in the U.S., copyright law includes something called fair use, which covers the times when using copyrighted material is allowed. One of these is student work, which is a protected category under fair use. This is U.S. copyright law, and while I'm pretty sure it applies to all work created by U.S. citizens, I'm not sure what the rules are in the U.K. or elsewhere.

    Since this is free sound afterall, I think you are free to use it for student work definitely (commercial work being another matter entirely), and attribution is always appreciated, but I'm sure others that know better will jump in to correct me if I'm wrong. smile

    Good luck on your projects!
