Rumblefish to sell songs for use in YouTube videos.

Rumblefish to sell songs for use in YouTube videos Smart move on Rumblefish’s part, and good for their artists

Rumblefish mostly represent independent musicians so you won’t find any major artists (or labels) in there, but there are about 35,000 songs to choose from, all with appropriately cleared licenses. This makes it good for YouTube videographers and additional revenue for the musicians.

Currently, YouTube videos that use music without a license can be deleted from the site, or can be partiallycovered with an ad that generates revenue for YouTube and the recording company.

Privately held Rumblefish, based in Portland, Ore., will be selling the licensed songs at its new website,
