Do you know how to and where to sell Public Domain music? If author of that music wants to make it's music to be Public Domain. Here is an example of music: https://youtu.be/oxPt8jFNn4s?list=PL9NxbUaDDGYahNtFLH8h_te91BsW4eMrQ . The music always will be awailable for free in the best possible quality but if somebody want to pay for it then good. The exaptions will be tape and vinyl relises where it is not possible to make music free for audience.

Public domain music is that - public domain. It cannot be sold. If you want to give an option to sell it, then it's not public domain.

You can do this on Bandcamp, for example.

Thank you for response. I need to do more researchers. Maybe it is possible somehow.

Because the owner of this music wants this music to be freely available for anybody and expects nothing in return. Money where never a reason of making this music. But if somebody wants to pay for it then good.
The real reason was just to try to make good music for a certain audience. And within available resources and limitations try to do no compromises if possible.

That's not exactly true.

You can sell recordings or packages of public domain music as much as you like.

You can't prevent anybody else from copying, performing or reinterpreting it.

Correct. If it's Public Domain, it simply means there are no copyright and royalty issues regarding sales, and you're free to market it however you like.

On that note, you can sell sheet music on Sibelius, if you're looking to get your music out there. I don't know the specifics of how much they take, etc.

Can you people name exact places where i can sell Public Domain music?

I contacted i think if i am not wrong it was Bandcamp and they asked for music to be copyrighted. And then i asked about Public Domain music and there was no responce from them.

iTunes is also out of question because it requires some kind of US Insurance number.


I think most likely awrything is doable even iTunes but with a good lawyer on my side which at this moument i do not have.
So for now i just want to find a place where i just can sell music as simply as possible.

Well, I listed Sibelius in the post above yours, but another thing: you do realize that if you sell it as Public Domain, you have no rights to the music- there's nothing stopping anyone else from selling it as well?

Public Domain means anyone's permitted to take it and use, change, or sell it as they please, as you are imposing no copyright upon it.

Just post the music on Youtube, and take as much advertising revenue as you can collect.

Also, you can do something like a Kickstarter, to finance physical distribution.

Yes i relize that.
And i strongly was thinking about that in the past and the final design was made that: if somebody will sell it and give nothing back to original owner it still will be good because music will reach more people.
That music where never made because of money but where made because of to spread true word of my Master in love truth good.
That music is heavily Christian.

My Master accepts such business model for this music: Anybody can take it for free. But if somebody wants to pay ok. We will be very happy. Because more better music equipment can be bought. But in case if we have more money then we actually need that money will be donated for somebody who truly need. So money will not be waisted if somebody donate us more money then we actually need.
But people who pay nothing vs who pay something are equally welcome.

So if somebody want to sell this music https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9NxbUaDDGYahNtFLH8h_te91BsW4eMrQ and give nothing to me i am ok with that because my Master is ok with that.

Here is music in studo quality (wav 32bit/192Khz). https://yadi.sk/d/kZuLVE7xp7fGv

The music had to be spliten for parts because that cloud storage i use has limit 10Gb per file.
But i cannot afford at this moument better places to keep such large files.

I disabled Ads in Youtube.
I do not want that Ad crapp appear to people in my music.
But of cause Youtube will not give me money because of that.


So Youtube is out of place where to sell music.

OK, so here's the next step:

Post your music on Youtube. Turn off the ads, make it fully available, the whole world can see it.

Then set up your own website for music and/or merchandise, and put links in your Youtube videos to tell people where they can buy it.

At that point, you can get as involved as you like in explaining to them how the money will go to equipment and charity - it's pretty much wide open to whatever you want to do.
