Copyright is always a touchy issue.
In OZ, if we videotape a concert /tallent show we need to have a one off permit – this allows the lawful conversion of copys right forms. What I mean is that when you purchase say sheet music, also included is the price is the copyright right to change it from the written form (sheet music) to the audible form (perfromed / played music). When you video tape, you convert from the performance to recorded performance form. Now if you talent concert is all original music and lyrics then you are ok. If you use recorded music and change the lyrics- you’re in trouble.
By the way – anyone dancing using cd music to dance to is infringing copyright is they do not have a permit to use the music in a public place.
It’s a darn pain.
