It is illegal to use the song in anything you make money off of or distribute openly.

Edit: /without full permission ect of the copyright holder.

Alot of people do it... but every once in a while through strange events the RIAA decides to sue a videographer ect who used a song illegally.


There is a lot of this in the Legal Board - check there.

Be careful with what you state. You might be incorrect. If they have gotten a master license and a sync license, it is legal inside the terms of their licensing agreements.

wre nto exempt.. were still liable for use of copywritten material..

here in Aus, we get APRA/ABIA licenses based on number of copies, and sync. Basically its less than a hundred dollars for 5 copies.. but u have to state what music ur using before u use it

Excellent! To what org or body does one inquire to in the Americas to get such license?

Thanks Peter.

} ... one of the least enjoyable things about wedding Videography is the terrible music

Must .... resist ... pet .. peeve .... GAAaahh! Alright, one little reply can't hurt. Much.

What always made me laugh inside was watching those DJs haul in LPs and CDs by the crateful, then without fail manage to program the whole night with the same sixty songs every other wedding party hears.

I calculated an 18% chance that all receptions are "kicked off" (yaawwwwnn) with Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock and Roll". 79% of all conga lines must use David Johansen's knockoff of "Hot Hot Hot", a development that The Buster rues to this day. When the MC notices that nobody over 55 is dancing, there is an 88% probability that some version of "Take the A-Train" will be next.

As so many Baby Boomers were getting hitched when I worked these gigs, I became painfully familiar with "Brown Eyed Girl", "Mustang Sally", "Superfreak", and "Wonderful Tonight". Good, bad, or indifferent, my patience for these numbers is utterly exhausted.

Let us not fail to include those groan-inducing Special Requests. Preteen girls will demand a "Chicken Dance", and all but the loopy guests oblige grudgingly. Worse yet is when Father O'Toole wants the band to play "Danny Boy" so he can murder it on the open mike AND/OR the bride's father gets up and sloshes through a barely recognizable "Mack the Knife".

And will we ever get enough of these certain four letters? "YYYYY-M-C-A!"

And then .... then .... Oh, no, the memory is starting to ache. Guess I'd better dismount the rant cannon.

Reason being is that most bridesmaids these days where strapless tops/dresses... its a sight to behold and my ears are a worthwhile sacrifice to envision that sight alone..
