I was just wondering....

I noticed in the two most recent animations that you use published music. I was curious to know how (or if) you went about getting permission to use them, and what the legal position is.

Not that I'm about to shop you to Warp or anything....assuming I get a good christmas present happy.gif

I have a friend who does film. He knows a lot about copyright laws and what-not. If you gouys would like, I could give him a call up.

My not-exactly-expert opinion is that since he's making no money off of the animation itself and is relying mainly on donations, it should be cool. Hmm...

I don't know how it is in the UK, but the only real fair use agreement in the US is for educational purposes... everything else, even non-profit projects, have to obtain permission from copyright holders.

Technically these latest animations are in breach of copyright laws. I don't really like doing this for this very reason, however, I do own original copies of these tracks and I am promoting the artist, the song, and the album, so I suspect that it would be a rare band that would get miffy about it. The negative publicity would far outweigh any gains that they would make... at least, that seems to be the principle that net animators have been working with since Flash became able to do sound.

*heh* so, like, the next time you make a game, could you, ya know, put, like three or four different tracks in? 'Cause, ya know, some games have stuff like that.

I could do, but that would eat bandwidth. This isn't Grand Theft Auto you know!

This isn't Grand Theft Auto? Darn, I must be in the wrong place. And I say, if there is a problem with copyright laws, at least in the US, as long as 25% of an artists work is different (in this case, every 4th note) you aren't infringing on anything. I say change every other note and call it your own. biggrin.gif Well, that's what I would do anyways with all the free time I seem to have on my hands nowadays.
