    Hi,

    For putting music and sounds into a game.

    Which options do we have and what supposes each option?

    I know about ad-hoc music, freeware, creative commons, ... but i don't know finally the legal aspects regarding each one.

    Anyone can elaborate a list with options and what exactly this option can mean to a developer?

    Thanks.

    creative commons you can read all about at their website, there are 3 levels of a creative commons license. Completely free to use, free with some rights reserved, and all rights reserved I believe. They're pretty self descriptive...
    For each individual case it would probably be best to contact the artist, just to be safe and to be courteous.

    Flickr is a good example of the types of Creative Commons you get:
    Creative Commons licenses:
    http://www.flickr.com/creativecommons/

    In general you combine these three elements how you want:
    - attribution : you need to credit the source
    - no derivatives : you cannot change the image in any way
    - non commercial: you cannot use it if you want to charge money for your application
