Content strikes and DMCA takedowns are the talk of the town these days. Content creators have to navigate the complex legal minefield of copyright without seeing their hobby — or in some cases, livelihood — destroyed.
Riot Games has made things a little easier on that front, previously making (nearly) its entire collection of music free for anyone to use in their creations. There are a few caveats, so you’d do well to read the article about it from last year before you use Riot’s music, all of which comes from League of Legends and can be found on Spotify.
If you’d like to use non-League music, Riot’s got you covered there too. The company recently released an album of 37 tracks called Sessions: Vi that are freely available for content creators to use in their works. The album is meant to represent tracks that the champion Vi would listen to while relaxing at home and was “developed in partnership with a number of talented musicians” and can be used “without concern of copyright strikes.” Riot Games Music has plans to develop future albums of the same nature in the future.
You can learn more about Sessions: Vi and Riot’s plans here. Even if you don’t plan to use Sessions: Vi for content creation, it’s a nice and chill collection to have on in the background while doing other stuff.
