Post Using Benn's Music for Monetary Gain
Hey guys, thanks for taking the time to view my post.

I am a gamer that creates content to release on YouTube. I recently made a video highlighting the defeat of a boss in Torchlight II. I wanted some good background tunes to make it interesting. Naturally, I thought The Flashbulb. There are some decent tracks that would make a good soundtrack to my video.

After some checking around I established that it was OK to use Benn's music if I give proper credit. (I'm not even totally sure of this by the way) While on theflashbulb.net I came a cross a message stating, "want to use the flashbulbs music for free? here is a flowchart". Unfortunately that flowchart is 404'd.

Now I am considering becoming a YouTube "partner" but there are some stipulations. I am aware of copyright law as I work at a camera store that has a lab in which copyright infringement is unacceptable. I came across this in the rules.

Your video is not eligible if it contains content that you didn't create or get permission from its creator to use. You need to be able to show written permission for the following video elements:

Audio: recorded music, live performances, cover songs, background music, etc.
Visuals: images, logos, software, video game footage, etc.
Any other content you don't own worldwide commercial usage rights to.


My question is, can I obtain this permission? Should I forget about using his music?

Any advice would be phenomenal. I apologize for the book.

Last note: I wanted to provide a link in my description to the page in which you can purchase the music from Benn.
