No argument – if you’re talking about the videographer using the resulting video to promote his business, but the client does have the right to make copies for personal use, of music they’ve purchased. Providing the service to put that music on their wedding DVD – in my opinion – would be defensible.
The Client Does.
That’s the operative word here, and I suspect why the record industry really isn’t going after wedding videographers. It’s also a very strong argument for the wedding videographers to change their business paradigm, which I have discussed before. If the videographer is clearly doing a “work for hire” job for the bride, then the employer (bride) is responsible for copyrights. The videographer is just an employee.
