how would one go about clearing the rights to using film samples in a released song?
be very very wary, Tarantino demanded an ALBUM credit for the Fun Loving Criminals' first one, just for one sample in one song (though am sure not everyone is as fascist)
there should be rules and regs for this with the musicians union, they should know the best route for it - and to protect your work
The Funloving CRiminals and Quintin T?
that counted as a percentage of the whole album (I believe he got participation 'points')
erm, simon, not miss...
good tip, thanks Ms Blue
I think it's 50 years isn't it?
andn they have armies of lawyers
and you will have to go through them
and they will not care that you are tiny
or make exceptions
they there to exploit the ir copyrights
or protect them
even more ruthlessly
if you are on a major you will have lawyers to do this for you
if you are doing a tiny rlease
here is what i'd do
a. just go ahead. if they ever hear of it, which is unlikely unless you have a hit of some description, on youtube, in the charts, or on myspace or whatever you'll probly just get a cease and desist and have to stop repressing
b. make a version now without the offending article while the tracks are live.
with Suave and Suffocated. It's got Dennis Hoppers "What are they going to say when he's gone" speech from Apocalypse Now.
I believe they had to get his permission is what I meant to add at the end.
Isnt the use of willy wonka in pendulums Through The Loop just the best example of a film sample? Either that or the countless ones used in Frontier Psycyatrist by The Avalances ^_^
don't you reckon?
