Copyright

i was just wondering what the guidelines are for using copyrighted songs? can you use them as long as you dont sell your film? does it apply for competions? any thoughts?

well for example if you were to put a song or music from somebody other than yourself on a You Tube video, and you do not have a certificate that says you are permitted to use that peice of music then you are breaking copyright law, now i would imagine that holds true for your movie, its to do with article 4 in the copyright legislation act or something along them lines. I hope this helps if not then you can go to a site like You Tube and people ave posted videos on copyright law which may help you further :slight_smile:

thanks alot for that
