Would love to know more about this... we need the Guru-of-All-Things-Apple (aka RC Lewis)... if she doesn't see this on her own, we'll have to send her a summons.
Are you thinking of using it for creating your own book trailer or even little mini-commercials to put on YouTube or float around with a paid SEO Google campaign?
Or maybe just to promote through social media.
We've been toying with this idea, especially since the possibilities are endless, and especially since there's so much cool stock footage content nowadays, including stock music & audio clips.

As far as I know, it should be fine. People use it to make vlogs (directly or indirectly promoting their work) and book trailers. The only thing I think might be iffy is if you were making videos and selling them directly (not just using them to promote something you're selling). You do need to be careful about any content you include that you don't create yourself—be sure you're clear on the licensing for stock content.
I'm really not the expert on this, though. Let's use those summoning powers and see if Jennie Bozic knows more than I do about it.

Hi! I looked it over, and you should be fine. It looks like they're even okay with you using the library that comes with it on a royalty-free basis for commercial work (including videos you want to sell, if you're ever so inclined). This is pretty standard for software like this. You just can't take their stock sound clips and then rebundle them for sale as if you were the original creator.
Usually the only time you *can't* use software like this commercially is if it's a student version because that comes at a discount.
As RC said, as long as you're being careful to check the licensing of any other stock photos and footage you want to use, you should be good to go!

You can also use tracks from Garage Band in your videos--you just can't sell those tracks.
I love connecting with and helping other AQCers outside this forum as well. You can find me all over the place!

Just making sure I'm legal here. This is what I've found and am a little confused about the last sentence. What would be considered a standalone basis. Just the music without the pictures?
iii. iMovie Software. Use of some iMovie features will depend on the features of your camera. You understand and agree that results from using the Video Stabilization and Rolling Shutter Correction features may vary and video stabilization and rolling shutter correction may not be achieved depending on video content quality. Results from the use of the People Finder feature will vary. Travel map graphics may not include all cities, countries or points of interests. You understand and agree that uploading your movies to a third party service requires compliance with the terms and conditions of that service.
iMovie contains sample content including but not limited to graphics, audio clips, video clips and/or templates (“Sample Content”). This Sample Content is proprietary to Apple and/or its licensors, and is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws, including but not limited to copyright. Except as otherwise provided, all Sample Content included in iMovie may be used on a royalty-free basis in your own video projects but may not be distributed on a standalone basis.
Everywhere I look, with the exception of Youtube, says you can use it for commercial use. But I'm just not quite understanding that last line.
Thoughts anyone? Has anybody done one before?
