That's all changed as the platform's Audio Library now allows someone to check on the availability and consequences of using a song on their video before they even make the video.
The video library now offers a array of free songs and sound effects, as well as outlines the availability of popular songs.
As you can see from the screen shot the left, the Library now shows in what territories an ad-supported popular song is available, if you can monetize the video or not (which is usually never), and the current popularity of the video.
For the free category, you have the option of hearing the song, searching by genre, mood, instrument or genre.
If you want to check out your own music, just put the song or artist name in the search box.
The Audio Library can be found by going to Creator Studio, then looking under the Create category.
