Intersting article

A young girl in the UK used an 80 year old Charlie Chaplin song in a video to raise money for charity. The company that owns the copyright asked the girl to pay about $4000 in licensing fees fer permission to use the song.

This is why I can't make the music that I want legally. In the last song I posted I used samples from three different sources. It could cost me about $12000 to put out that song legally. For an artist like me who doesn't make any money from their music and is only doing it for pleasure this is crazy! How could I possibly come up with that kind of money just to record one of my songs?
