You may use royalty-free music that has no restrictions on its usage. This includes the loops supplied in GarageBand and the other Apple applications on your laptop. It also includes royalty-free music with a Creative Commons Attribution (by) license assuming you credit the artist(s) as required. No music or sound effects that hold any other CC licenses can be used because they are too restrictive for all the possible exposure for your CMF movie. Similarly, any other websites that offer royalty-free music that has restrictions such as "no commercial use" may not be used for CMF without the artist(s) signing a music agreement; otherwise, if you won, we couldn't show your movie in-flight with Virgin America, through our distribution partners, or possibly even on the big screen at our events.
