Most tracks that aren't featured on Jamendo are older material which we can licence for small commercial projects and monetized YouTube videos at lower cost and, in some cases, free of charge. A very small number of tracks contain samples from other material licensed only for non-commercial use and cannot currently be offered for licensing.
