Excuse the “new guy in town,” but I have a music studio and I MAKE audio recordings that I sell, and ASCAP is coming after me for “songs in their catalog” that have samples on my website.
My website is over 15 years old, and I have SCRUPULOUSLY kept samples to 25-29 seconds.
You should see the licensing contract that ASCAP emailed me to allow me to have samples of “covers” of the songs that I produce.
And beyond that, the accounting that they require is insane. How long did sample A play for user1, on what day/hour/min/sec did it start/end? Who is the rights holder of the song that this sample comes from (evidently that’s my job, not theirs..).
