This is fascinating and really tells you a lot! Thanks for informing us about this. So would you likely recommend going to Vimeo and using audio/songs from there? They have a very large library of free songs as long as you give credit!

michael, it'd be interesting to hear what your review of this video would be. i've got a few critiques of it that i won't share here. it's good information generally -- but.... uhmmm... i can make a better video for you for the right price ;)

Stofkom, to obtain rights to songs like that, you need to contact the person who owns the copyright. You can go online and do a copyright search at places like http://www.copyright.gov/ and then you have to contact the person who owns it. Prices for music like the song you listed can run you tens of thousands of dollars to use, and only that once usually. Even the song "Happy Birthday" is copyrighted and can run you 700$ or more for simply singing it for a couple of seconds in a video, and you don't want to get caught as the production company because you can get slapped with heavy fines or jail time.

I spend a lot of time on revernation and myspace looking at unsigned artists, and have ask asked to use there music. I have yet to come across some one that says no yet. Most are thrilled that you want to use one of there songs and I always give them credit and throw a link in the credits.

What is the website that sells music that has a copyright on it? Let’s say I want to by a song like Aerosmith's walk this way, and I want to use it in a video that someone has paid me to make for their website. What would I expect to pay for such a song?
