Legalities

Someone was talking about getting a mixtape done. I’m more than happy to help and have told the guy as much. But legalities come into this.

At a guess, this bloke either has no recording equipment, or he doesn’t know how to copy tracks from hard drive to CD. That’s a simple process. Very easy to do, but I need to get him to understand that I will not copy MY album tracks. I’ll be more than happy to BUY him the songs he wants and send them to him, but piracy?

Not. Bloody. Likely.

See, I’m a radio jock. I know the ins and outs of piracy to a degree. I’d like to know the whole legal process. I know that if you share songs with others, however you do it; if the Royalties are not paid, then someone is not being paid for their work.

And that is not on.

My Hospital Radio station pays Royalties on the music they use for all programmes. It’s why we keep a log of everything we use. Then we know who needs paying and for how many times. It’s simple. Make a mixtape as often as you like. But if that’s the road you’re going down, make sure the music you use is paid for.

Or you’re in a whole heap of trouble.

Too right an’all.
