Template:Unreliable sources Template:Use British English Template:Infobox record label

NoCopyrightSounds (abbreviated as NCS) is a British record label and music organisation founded by Billy Woodford in 2011. The label was initially created as a means to discover royalty-free music that could be used on Woodford's video game videos.[1]

NCS releases music created by a variety of different musicians. All music released by NCS may be used royalty-free on YouTube and Twitch with appropriate attribution.[2] The label mainly publishes music that pertains to the electronic dance music genre as well as other alternative themed music.

Despite the record's name, songs have been removed due to contract expirations, mainly before NCS became a label dedicated to free to use songs in late December 2013. False copyright claims that struck the label have been fixed.[3][4][5][6]
