You should take the following steps to ensure a sound is based on 100% original work and doesn’t incorporate any infringed copyrights, or sounds available in the public domain:
- First, ask the sound creator. Sound creators must declare any non-original work used, or risk account suspension.
- You can also upload the image to YouTube to see if it is identified in the Content ID system.
- If you’re running a contest, listen to the other submissions contributed to the contest – they’re the experts, and can often spot a plagiarized design in moments.
