What are the possible consequences for using copyrighted music in non-commercial (free and no ads) games?

 

You can get a threatening letter demanding that you take the game offline and make it unavailable, destroy all copies, track down all downloaders/users of the game and ask them to destroy it -- or you can be sued.  Same as if it was a for-profit game.
