Demo Reel music
on Apr 28, 2006 at 4:43:53 am

I'm in the process of re-working my demo reel and have selected a commercial track (albeit somewhat unknown) as the bed music. What are the legalities of using such music for one's own "promotional purposes".

For instance, another web forum I frequent won't allow you to post anything that *may* contain copyrighted material and so any demo with such copywritten music would be pulled.

How does one go about finding out publisher info to secure rights for a selection? Is it worth it? Am I being paranoid?

I've noticed a number of demos posted here are using commercial music and one poster mentioned something about it not really being an issue with regard to legalities.

Any info/advice/suggestions are welcomed.
