remixing and contacting artists for permission

Post by Abterra » Thu Jan 20, 2011 9:04 pm

whats up all,

I have done a couple remixes over some a Capella tracks that I had. I understand that you cannot publish or publicly distribute your remixes without the artists consent. Has anyone contacted an artist and got the green light? It seems that it is such a big feat to contact lets say, Common's PR or something.

anyone?

Peace, Tyler

No-one will care if you're not trying to sell it.

If you are, get a good lawyer.

If it's good enough, you should be hearing from them!
