In fact, you could do this several times when you slant your report different ways. For example, do your research and then compile a report titled, “How to Make Money using Free Images from the Public Domain” You could also list resources where others can find these free images. Then you can do the same thing for other kinds of content readily available from the public domain.

Other ways to Build Your List using the Public Domain

All you have to do is conduct an Internet search for public domain music and you will be presented with a plethora of websites that will direct you to the right sources for music files. While it is up to you to verify that these files are indeed in the public domain, doing so is relatively easy also.

It’s important to realize whether or not the clips, songs, or other music related material you are using is truly from the public domain, which means there are no restrictions whatsoever on how you use the material or if you are using material that has certain licenses you must abide by. For example, you can download free music sound effects and clips from Freesound, but you must cite the source. In addition, since each country has its own laws regarding public domain, you will have to abide by the laws of the country in which the public domain music or clip originated.

Public Domain Sheet Music

There is a wide variety of free public domain sheet music that you can readily find online. Internet marketers with musical talent can profit by taking the free sheet music and coming up with their own compositions, which they can then copyright and sell via digital download, on CD, or both. There is no limit what you can do with public domain material, including music, to further your Internet marketing enterprise.
