As a preliminary discussion, he says that if the person who is purchasing the service from me is providing the song (legally purchased) - it wouldn't be a problem...unless that person made copies & sold those dvds... that's another issue but I'm not the one being pursued.
That's how he sees things from his knowledge of the industry. OF course, he'll have to dig a bit deeper to make sure...and we'll work on a sample contract together.
I'm thinking I'll move forward with this...yes, it'll cost me a few hundreds but I might make a few hundreds and more too!
I just keep thinking about all the poor (literally) writers, artists, and musicians out there who work at least as hard as everyone else.
If the client wants another song of his choice, well then I'll add it for FREE - meaning I won't CHARGE MORE because it's a known artist's song.
The major part of this work isn't THE SONG... I aint' reproducing his whole CD and selling COPIES of it nor am I making millions off of my work! I mean... if my work includes a royalty free song...then I won't be making MORE money because of that popular song.
Anyhow, that's my perception.
Granted, I'm a terrible hypocrite when it comes to personal use, having often enough shared shows that were accompanied by music I in no way paid for. I'd be awfully careful, however, about using someone else's intellectual property in a commercial way without compensation.
One thing you might look into are the huge collections of music out there under Creative Commons licensing where the musicians ask sometimes pitiful amounts for the use of their music.

Barbara, I agree with you - to define something being "rip off" would mean asking many times more then people would consider to buy, consumers would shudder and would not purchase anything. And since the company is still in business and has many customers who are buying .... Price is then acceptable for them and they are getting their money worth .....

Alexandra you explained it perfectly...
- A. "Small" brother -" Express Track" - is free with first purchase of CD Music ,
- B. "Big" brother version "Scoring Edition") is $99, I did not see it on sale,
- C. Music CD's are on sale - several times during a year.
And I'm glad I was able to explain the SmartSound concept for people to understand,
thank you for your comment.
I have been using Sonicfire for about 4 years now, Cant agree more with you, if you need music flexibility, this is the software. ......Of course this is just my opinion .....
Thanks for the confirmation of the strength and usability of software int Producer -(wow - 4 years !!!) -
you have more experience then I have, would love to hear about it more from you.
...And about my preference for SoniFire & its way "to make a music" - I agree with you - it is just each person own opinion...
For written and artistic, including computer programmes, 70 years after the death of the writer or artist.
By the look of things, it seems we are o.k, in England at least, to use any music released in or prior to 1960.
There were a lot of good tracks released back then, so how do we stand in the U.S?

Not any more for those in the EU -- don't know if the UK follows EU rules for this or not.
