This whole topic of copyright got me thinking. What about those Videographers who shoot weddings and funerals that use copyrighted music in their videos. Here is an example of one I found on the web. You can just click on Dancing Segment on this website http://www.yourvideographer.com/samples.html This Videographer uses the song “Let’s Get It Started” by The Black Eyed Peas and The Black Eyed Peas are signed with A&M Records. Unless the videographer got permission from A&M Records to use this song, isn’t this illegal that the videographer is using this music, if he didn’t get permission? The reason why I ask this is, I want to know what is right, because I am starting my foundation to build a video production business and I do not want to go down the wrong path legally and ethically.
