Sorry if this had been discussed before. If I want to use bits of samples and mash it up for a tvc, would it be legal to use?
TVC = TV Channel ?
more likely Television Commercial - and the reason they are asking perhaps is that there aren't credits on a TVC..
and/or if you do a film "*they*" are unlikely to want to give credits as follows.. ( *the people paying for the film - hopefully paying u for the film.. )
lightening flash in some random scene halfway thru by martian
door close ( kitchen ) freddie (uk)
aircon hiss - Julie
wind by fartinyourdirection
sword swish by sam
etc endless list in a 90 minute film or even a busy 20 minute film...
sorry! bit of serious fun?
:idea: I guess you could make a webpage - but then the ad company may get pi$$ed if you put the ad online without permission...
is that your answer?
thinking about practicalities- I suppose if you mash it up beyond recognition then you're ok...
as it's a new work and they cant recognise it!
I think copyright only goes as far as recognisable - so using someones door slam as a snare / or bass guiatar d string open and other sampled single notes that they put on the internet and making it to a riff is ok I think..
but 4 bars of them whistling something or making any sort of tune is gonna require permission...
of course ( ducking ) I could be wrong...
I'll say this tho - I pretty much suppose that of the 3000 people who downloaded some of my samples I got like 3 requests... so what do the other 2997 kleptomaniacs do?
