“By the way is there some sort of online resource that pro’s use for free music or something like that?”
Definitely! Music Bakery and Music Two Hues both supply very usable buyout music, including discs of “wedding music,” i.e., music that you’ve heard before. Additionally, I believe WEVA has made arrangements with at least one agency for the licensing of well known songs for a modest fee and I believe WeDJ has as well. A bit of digging on line should turn up specifics, as will contacting WEVA.
As Joseph says, lots of wedding videographers ignore copyright issues altogether. And as we both suggest, they do so at their peril, particularly in this day of social media and the internet.
