: I found this citation on the Harry Fox Agency site.
: "The recorded use of music in combination with visual images ("synchronization") does not come within the scope of the compulsory license provisions of the U.S. Copyright Act."
: My question is if it does not fall within the compulsory license provisions, why are they requiring it?
: They are applying to live performance only, why would it not hold for any combination medium (I am thinking of animation or video as well as live performance.) with recorded music.
If you knew and understood the law, there would be no use for lawyers. You make a mistake now and you usually pay heavier later. (Reality Check(sm))
