Copyright Music

Music will be an important part of your sound design, but it is vital that you don’t just put anything on. If the music you have selected is copyright material, the author may not appreciate you using his work without permisison. We will look at avoiding this, by using Creative Commons, musicians and asking permisson form the copyright holders directly.

This will take place in the LRC.

  • What breaks Copyright?
  • Why is it important?
  • Alternatives to copyright music?
  • Sources of copyright cleared music.

You will need to refelct on the information in the presentation and the results of the activity, as well as find some suitable music for your video.
