UWOL#2 Rule Question

From the rules page -
3. All material must be original and shot for the purpose of being judged in this contest. All music must be fully licensed. If you use copyrighted materials (music or other copyrighted works), be prepared to show us proof that you own the right to use it. Without proof, we will remove your video from the site.


I use several local bands to create my music for my soundtracks. None are signed by a label. All have a license with me that states I can use their music (usually 3 specific tracks) in my productions. Will you need a copy of that agreement or is that ONLY if the artist has copywritten that track? I also create my own music...how do I prove that I have the rights to my own music if I have not legally copywritten it? Sorry for the stupid questions, I just don't want to be disqualified.

the operant phrase in that rule is "be prepared"--in all likelihood, we won't ask, unless the song is immediately recognizable. it's to foreclose on the "it's just a non-commercial web movie" attitude. yes, it's just a non-commercial web video, but we are encouraging our users to adopt professional standards and to adhere to existing laws.
