Copyright music on skate video DVD

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the legality behind making an independent skate video and using music that is not yours? What about selling DVD's? I've hear there's some maximum number of DVD you can produce before its considered infringement?

any commercial use, distribution, or broadcast of an unlicensed track is considered infringement. dvds can fall under any of those three.

Yeeeeeah, so as skateboarders, we break the “rules” alot. This is one of those things. Most companies will let you print 999 dvds as duplications and they only have some shady documents where you claim to have permission even though you don't and they usually believe you. 1000 or more dvd’s and you usually do the replication process which they take a bit more serious. If your just making a homie video, its not likley anyone is gunna track you down to find out if you did it right buuuuuut it is a possibility. ??
