    Speech from TV used in song


    I recorded the speech of a father of a son that was murdered in the UK riots. A very moving speech he did to the media but I wonder if using it in my rap track will get me into copyright / permission problems. I think I have used the sample respectfully but who knows the man himself could strongly object if he found out. I have put so much work into this track I really don't want to give up on it now. Any thoughts re copyright etc?

    I know which man you mean, he deserves a lot of respect, any way you could ask him ? Could be via the TV company who interviewed him, a letter to him "care of" or something similar. Just a thought.

    Good idea. This has made me think even more cautiously. So, I have decided to to take the easier option and remove much of his speech from the rap. I've left a few snippits of his speech along with other speeches - more in the background rather than fronting the track.

    Well here it is. Hopefully not too problematic. If anyone should be cross with it it should be David Cameron!
