    Question on use of a sound for a Station Identification:


    I'm in the process of creating a Station ID for a non-commercial website that plays old radio shows. So it would be "You're listening to , thousands of free radio shows. It's that simple" Basically one of the static/radio tuning sounds fading into the announcement/identification.

    Is a Station ID considered promotion or advertising? I'm unclear on this. Also, to make the sound more interesting, I would be running it through a glitcher/altering the sound quite a bit, but it is still using the original sampled/recorded sound.

    If it is considered advertising and/or promotion, then I'll go a different route and figure something else out.

    Thanks

    It is probably fine but best check with the author of the sound you intend to use.

    Hi LG, thanks for the response. I sent the author a message, so I'll hope he's able to get back to me soon.

    Thanks!

    Edit: and a quick response from the author says I'm good to go! smile

    Also, you must be able to credit the uploader. Unless of course again the uploader gives you permission to use it without attribution.
