Copyright Material. Hi Paulears,
Lizp comments, related solely to a wedding video.
I did say “written permission from a band playing their own original music” I have experienced lesser known bands at functions happy to let me promote their band and music by way of video and such an introduction, ultimately led to my making of music videos for three bands.
The recording of any professional performances requires prior written consent.
I agree guests have rights. In a wedding video where most of the guests and all the wedding party would appear in the video unless a guest instructs otherwise. I have witnessed a wedding MC make a public announcement regarding the video at the start of proceedings.
Should a wedding video show snippets of the wedding guests on a dance floor or wherever with the vision and audio of a band playing in the background it is my understanding it’s not a problem.
