Jennifer Cowley's insight:

If you're working on a project and want to include some music, ALL the music available on jamendo is licensed under Creative Commons so it's legal to use it in projects.   Canada doesn't have the same fair use clauses in our Copyright legislation as the US does where students have more freedom to use copyrighted work in for educational purposes, so it's important for Canadian students to use either public domain, GNU, or CC licensed work and to do so within the parameters of the license.  When using music in your work, even if it is licensed, be sure to REFERENCE it correctly according to the style required by your teacher (MLA, APA, etc.).
