Having said this, there are still some terms and conditions which you need to follow if you do not want to face a copyright infringement situation:

  1. If a song has a disclaimer saying; ‘This song is not available for use in your YouTube video’; you are not allowed to use it for your monetized videos. 
  2. If a song is copyrighted and you still wish to download it, you will first have to seek the permission of the copyright owner.

In short, please go through the disclaimers tagged along with the songs thoroughly and refrain yourself from using copyrighted songs for your personal or commercial use.
