Thread Name: Smalltime Copyright Rules ?
Subject: RE: Smalltime Copyright Rules ?
I don' t want to say that you should, but I can tell you that people do It all the time. If you do it, make sure that you give credit to the people who are responsible in your liner notes, at least then you don't look like you want the credit yourself. Some people put " Demo Not For Sale" on CD's and Tapes. This might be a loophole, I'm not sure. If a big Label signed you ( If there are any interested in Irish, when Rap is around making Billions ) They would repackage it correctly I think. I don't know how long it would take, or how much it costs to get the permission. I'm not sure what the fine is for this either. Do as Chet said, and look in the Intellectual property thread. Look for the hypertext of Copyright Laws. Good Luck.
