Resources for Understanding Copyright Law and/or using Mainstream Music
   www.videouniversity.com/copyright.htm - This is a recommended starting point. This is a very thorough and helpful article by expert: Douglass Spotted Eagle. (hosted by a great website)
   copyright.gov - Information From the Government. This website gives you the law straight from the source, but it's not easy reading...
   harryfox.com/index.jsp - The Harry Fox Agency is one of the best resources for obtaining license to music you wish to use (that isn't your own property) ...But it won't be cheap, and unfortunately, the "big guys" are not often interested in working out a license deal for a "small production". You will find that some of the smaller companies will work with you (with very reasonable prices). Just make sure you are getting *all* the licenses you need. These may include (but are not limited to) synchronization, mechanical, master-use.
   www.harryfox.com/public/infoFAQDefinitions.jsp - Here you will find some Terms/Definitions/Facts (thorough but wordy) This will educate you further on the nuances of music licensing.
   www.pdinfo.com - Offers some resources that may help you find music that is in the "Public Domain." But be careful. Just because an original work is in the public domain, does not mean that a more current arraignment, performance, or recording is public domain. Also, if your project has an international market, make sure you understand the laws outside of the US. The copyright law abroad does not always recognize the American standard for "public domain."
