Multimedia Creators Resources: For exhibition/online

If your art work will be displayed publicly or shared online...

Any public exhibition is considered a performance. Be careful using any copyrighted material in works you plan to display publicly, including any music. Also, audio recordings don't have the same rules as text and images for when they are automatically out of copyright.

When looking online for stock audio files, always double check the license or terms of use. Some sites offer free files, or you can pay a licensing fee to use it in a public work. This is called Commercial Use.
