Thread: Advice Needed?

  1. #1

    Default Advice Needed?

    Ive had a lot of confusion to a question of, a license needed to play copyright songs for fighters entrance music. Does any promoters on here know anything about it.

    I was told there needed to be a license for the fighters to use such music or I could become prosecuted by the music labels.

    Can anyone shed any light about this?

    cheers

    You need permission of the copyright holders.

    But as a fighter you won't get done, the promoters will if they put it on a dvd.

    I'll get you an extact answer soon

    kainer pretty much has it on the button. Technically speaking if you play an artists song in public they are deserving of royalty payment (fee) for this. Therefore this all needs to be registered and done in accordance with copywrite laws.

    i had wondered about this cos the UFC had a stage where everyone had either standard entrance music, or that of the UFC metal artists, but recently they have gone back to giving the artists a choice. Some agreement will have had to be met.

    I'm sure CR don't allow copywritten music to be used as entraces anymore.

    Individual music is the way forward imo

    Easy solution then, fighters come out to their own choice of music. Dvd is edited with the promoters choice of copyright free music and some fake crowd noise, happy days.

    It's not really an easy solution, as the extra editing costs time and money and if not done properly sounds and looks crap.
