    Probably you'll need to ask the creator before using it lmao. It'll be rude if you don't

    Whew I am back at full capacity everyone! Time to get organized here. Hope everyone's holidays were excellent! I have updated the main list of participants on the first post, let me know if you spot anything out of the ordinary! Big thanks to Mustika for stepping in, wish I had seen his post before making my own so I could have saved some time but oh well lol

    This week I will get an update on the status of prizes from the last competition. Also expect a new montage and release schedule coming up soon! It's taking a bit longer due to some copyright issues we're sorting through, but it will be done.

    Gonna answer some questions for everyone:

    Can you go in to more detail in a PM maybe? Fair Use is sometimes difficult to argue depending on how the original material is used. Many times people believe they are in the clear under Fair Use when they are not, so I just want to be certain before giving the go-ahead.

    Yeah, the majority of the time the author will be fine with it but if it doesn't have a public license you do need to get permission. You can see the license for each track on the left side of it's view page. If it's not a public track, you can send them a message and get permission directly which clears you for use.

    Yes. If you're taking songs from an album, movie, show, or game it's more than likely copyrighted.

    Also, can you update the thread with current participant please?
    There are no repercussions for not finishing lol just do your best and make good use of your time and if you can't finish then it's no big deal. You can always try again next round!

    Also the thread is updated :P

    Jeff, are nightcores and dubsteps free of copyright?
    You know, when you speed up the music and add some extra beats to it?
    There are a lot in YouTube so just asking.

    Also, to what extent are we not allowed to use copyrighted music?
    Can we cut clips of it for certain sections of the animation?
    Also, how about song covers, music sung by another, they are not copyrighted anymore right?

    This is kind of a grey area. In the music industry it seems that there's disagreement over when exactly a song becomes transformed enough to be considered a completely different song. Many Nightcore songs are transformed so much that they are considered original work, in which case you still need to get permission from the author because they own the copyright for it now.

    However a great number are actually infringing copyright because they just aren't transformed enough. These are actually considered covers. Covers are kind of strange. They are not inherently copyright-free, and if you want to legally cover a song you need to own the mechanical license for it. Despite this most people who cover songs never bother to get a license and exist in a grey area, but these covers are still technically copyright infringement and we can't accept the use of them either.

    Think of it like this: Would you feel your rights have been violated if someone traced your animation frame for frame and published it on YouTube, then a company came along and used it in a commercial without asking which made them thousands of dollars?

    Unfortunately no, we cannot accept it at all if it has any length of copyright music in it. Some people believe it's not copyright infringement if you only use a couple of seconds of the song but it still is.

    To be clear though that depending on the subject matter you might still be able to use copyright music and be protected under Fair Use. If you are going to use copyright music under Fair Use I would advise you send me a message first because I find a lot of people don't clearly understand Fair Use and I don't want anyone to do a lot of work and have their entry rejected because it's not actually Fair Use.

    Also, if you own the license to use a copyright track then you are free to include that song. Some people here actually have purchased licenses to songs for use in their work which allows us both to be in the clear legally.
