Frequently Asked Questions

FREE LOFI is a free royalty-free audio library for content creators.

It is a collection of copyrighted music by me, Delano T. Jarrett.

I intend to create a mutually beneficial situation where content creators can get free music, and I can also raise awareness of my brand.

If free resources like FREE LOFI bring you value, you may enjoy DREAMS TO JOURNEYS.

The musical works you’ll find on freelofi.com have either been produced by me, or created by a ghost producer. The ideal future of freelofi.com would be attaining a constant stream of donations that would enable me to commission more audio tracks.

Copyright-free and royalty-free are constantly misused terms.

Royalty-free essentially means that a customer only has to pay a licensing fee once. Once they have, they can use the music for as long as they wish (within the terms of the purchased license).

It does not mean free to purchase. And it does not mean free of copyright.

Freelofi.com is here to provide you with free royalty-free music. So not only can you download an album for free, you never ever have to pay additional fees to keep using it.

Copyright Tips To Stay Informed

Creative Commons Website

To avoid copyright issues with services, always make sure you keep a copy of their license terms.

No.

The music on freelofi.com is copyrighted music that you are being given permission to use. 

Be aware of services that lure users with the term copyright-free, when in fact their license says otherwise. There are actually a few popular music services that are guilty of this.

The freelofi.com music library being copyrighted helps to deter fraudulent activity. Thus ensuring more people get to use this service.

Music services often use a system called Content ID to easily identify and manage their content on YouTube. Services like Twitch may use a music recognition system called Audible Magic.

FREE LOFI music is not registered with Content ID or Audible Magic.

Freelofi.com will not acquire any monetary gain from your YouTube videos, Twitch streams, or any other projects you make with freelofi.com music.

These systems are not perfect though and may mistakes certain songs as others. If your ever get a strike, or muted, please get in touch ASAP.

Please contact me as soon as possible so I can investigate what went wrong. The content ID system is not perfect and can make a mismatch and it will be important to know what song is causing an issue.

It would be extremely rare for me to file a copyright strike as there are very few restrictions for using the music on freelofi.com. 

A possible reason would be if someone is reselling the music, or is using the music to promote violence or discrimination against a person or group.
