Time to Make Your Music Legal

Time to Make Your Music Legal « Photofocus

As a photographer, I know what it feels like to have my images used without my permission. Those of us who earn a living selling photos are particularly sensitive to Copyright infringement. Yet, countless times, I see photographers using illegal music in their public slide shows. It’s time to put an end to that practice.

Reading this article made me realise that even if you show your AVs only at club meetings you should not use music that you are not licensed to use. Current feeling in the club is that using any music is acceptable if you are not going to show your AVs at public venues for which admission is being charged. Seemingly this is not the case.
