What are the restrictions of using commercially available rock like Metallica and using it in a documentary...ven if the documentary isnt being sold for profit? Also, does anyone have experience with royalty free music? Is there a particular site that everyone goes to get it?

I guess all the film makers are out making films and the wannabe's are on this board wondering where the hell they get their music!

I doubt it's okay to use something like Metallica, regardless of whether it's for profit or not. The LegalGround might be a good place to ask.

My experience with royalty free websites is that they suck, but that experience is dated; maybe there are some that are better now.

Copyrighted is copyrighted & your lack of revenue has zilch to do with that. Ixnay on the Etallicamay. You might find major artists that are willing to sign away the rights if the docu serves their agenda, but for sure don't cut anything based on a prayer. Get it in writing up front.

If you a friend who is a film/telecom/communications/production major, or employed in that field, they probably have access to a library like Network Music or whatever that you can sift through & license via the contact information on the label.

Royalty free sites are out there but the quality can vary. What's your price range? Usually the better sounding stuff is more expensive. WWE has used some of these songs for their wrestlers in the past. (example of such: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khrFw4mrPPA)

I'll be willing to those some tracks at you if you want (instrumentals).

 I always enjoy freeplaymusic.com  You can search by instruments, feeling, and genre.  They list charges for using their music but I've used them on websites, cartoons, and movies and never paid a cent.  I'm a bastard.  Enjoy!

Anyone tried musicalley.com? I haven't really looked into it, but I hear it's free for Podcasts as long as you give them credit.

Not sure if it's limited to podcasts, or is allowed with any online movie.
