What is the proper way to give credit or indicate the license for to a piece of music (or other asset such as a stock photo) used in a video from the Camtasia assets?

For example: Music: "A Sweet Feeling" by TechSmith"

First, if the music is “royalty-free music” and legally acquired (like it is when included with Camtasia), giving credit is not required.


But if you wanted to, just add credit titles at the end, like to see on tv or films, or as a lower third banner somewhere along the way.

Actually, I think using  "Royalty Free" music and images generally requires  a license. I purchased a license for a music track that was flagged on YouTube which I had to then defend by providing the license information.  On AudioJungle and on LuckStock,  I always receive license information.  If TechSmith is offering music and image files from third parties in their  $199 a year offer, there must be some license agreement that we can refer to. If so, is this a general license or is it on a per item basis?  Thanks.

Even if there is a "license" involved, it does not mean on-screen credit is required.

I was answering the OP question as asked.

Further,  being able to acquire the RF piece _without_ a watermark implies you acquired it according to license requirements.

Well in Europe, copyright is becoming a major issue.  My question, is not specifically about providing on-screen credit  - although I generally do this. I just want to be aware of and in accordance with any license when using RF assets. Thanks.

To be honest, you should be able to get clarification from the individual RFM source you legally acquire  RFM pieces from -- each should have a license agreement you can/should review.
