On what grounds do you have "fair use"? Fair use is a very clearly (and tightly) defined legal term. That you are asking the question suggests that you do not have any legal right to Fair Use of the content. Unless you have explicit permission to use a work created by someone else then you have no legal right to use it and you are liable to be prosecuted for breaching heir copyrights. Giving credit is meaningless legally. Would it be OK if someone came to your house and stole your stuff but left a note saying that they acknowledged that it did not belong to them but they were taking it and using it anyway?

Giving credit has nothing to do with fair use. Fair use is a pretty narrow thing by US copyright law ans has to do with using a small portion of a copyrighted work for the purpose of criticism, new reporting, education etc.

If you don't have a license to "insert some music" that you did not personally compose, perform and record, then it's a copyright infringement. When you're sued, you can attempt to use the "fair use" defense by proving (in federal court, if necessary) that your particular use of that particular music in that particular way in that particularly small portion was so insignificant that it is unlikely to have any effect upon the existing market for the copyright owners' own recordings. Good luck with that. It almost never succeeds at trial. Fair use is a narrow exemption, not a free "get out of jail" card. Otherwise, anyone could give away free copies of things and say it's "fair use" and not be liable for the statutory damages of $150,000 for each and every song duplicated or distributed without a license. 17 USC 107, 504 Yes, it's true that some producers actually "give away" a free license, but usually only for personal use in private, not for worldwide distribution.
