      PS - Not all free music is free. Freeplay is pricey if you're using the music commercially. Check rates and licensing terms.

      Although you'd never know it from YouTube, there sure are. Music for performance (just playing the music) is broadcast rights, handled through BMI, ASCAP and (usually in Canada) SESAC. If you're putting it to picture, that's synchronization rights, and is handled via the Harry Fox Agency and a few others. When I was coming up in the recording studio business, I was steeped in this stuff. Unless the music is in the public domain (and most recorded performances of, say, classical music are not), then a big ole yes, though the lack of enforcement does constantly surprise me. 

      There are many online sources of legal music libraries, some free, for online and other use.

      I hadn't thought of that.  Are there, gang?

      correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there are licensing considerations for putting music on Web sites.
