There are three options for using the music:
1. Use the music for free if you credit the music to "Dan-O at http://danosongs.com". Download CreditLicense.pdf. As an option, you can also post an image or video to your website and blog when you credit me. Click here for images. For videos you can put the credit in the video and or the description.
2. With no credit donate at least $10 per track. Donating is an easy way to use one of my tracks by giving you more freedom when sharing your project. Donating also directly contributes to the amount of time I can spend making music for the community. If you have your paypal receipt you can download the donation license here: DonationLicense.pdf.
