Hooray for Royalties

Post  Ar0n on Mon Mar 09, 2009 8:30 pm

Hey,
I was just wondering, since you have to pay for music like Beatles, Stones, Police, etc... What if you get a different band (or your own band) to cover the song. Would you still have to pay since the song still isn't yours?
Thanks,
Aron

PS
Do a contest Mark.

Yes if you cover songs you have to pay as well....you should pay if you cover their songs in live shows too.

BTW, Mark already has a video explaining his future contests....you can see it at his YouTube page.

Hey I thought that it actually was legal, according to cover laws...

At least that's the way it is in the Netherlands, I suppose it's the same in the US, or not?

Alrighty then,
And just another follow up question, what if you have a video, and the music is playing in the background (like on a stereo system) as opposed to adding it in while editing.

Even if it was captured unplanned, you still have to go by the books and pay the fee.
You could also refilm though....which would be cheaper.

90% of audio heard on TV is added in post-production. Shotgun mics are used to pick up the actors voices but nothing else around them.

How about a really old classical song (like Pachelbel's Canon) performed recently by an orchestra. Does someone really have to rights to those?

If the audio track is "Public Domain" you can use it without a problem. Most older video and audio are public domain and so you can use them freely.

I edited some old Superman footage years ago with an old audio track to make a no smoking PSA.

I work in a 1 hour photo lab, and according to company policy, if the photo was professionally done, a copyright release is needed to copy that photo, reguardless how old it is. The only thing we allow to be copied without a release form is a military photo. We were instructed that a copyright never dies when the photo owner dies. The copyright to that photo goes to the nearest living relitive. More than likely the same thing applies to music and video, as these are all covered under the Federal Copyright Policy that was rewritten not too long ago. On the lighter side, recently I decided to turn one of my photos into a poster, and on the bottom of the poster I had text saying; "Photo by: Brosius Photography". Well, I got a note back from the lab that does our send-out stuff, saying that I needed to send them a copyright release before they will send me my poster. So I wrote out a quick copyright release, and stapled my business card to it. Now when I send in some of my stuff, they automatically send it though. Some of my customers ask me how I can tell if a photo was done by a professional. I tell them there are several things to look at. First, how the people are posed. Second, backdrops and props used. And lastly, a studio watermark. Some people thought they can cover up the watermark, but I can tell if they did that! I've had a few that did a pretty good job of covering it up, but I used a magnifying glass and then could spot it.
