I am currently making a song for a remix contest, and I'd like to upload it this week (The Temper Trap's "Trembling Hands" competition). However, there are certain copyright issues I'd like to avoid, such as the issue of not being able to upload my song. So, I ask for clarification: Am I allowed to upload a song with copyrighted material that is distributed to the public for free? Can my remix go here?
The Remix competition will have terms and conditions that should make it clear whether or not you are allowed to distribute the entry however you like..
taken from the T&C on their page http://www.indabamusic.com/opportunitie ix-contest
"Entrant is permitted to use the Audio Assets solely for the creation of Submission Materials and Remixes and participation in this Contest."
So there are terms that you agreed to in doing the remix that you would only use it to enter the competition.. in which case I would say the answer is no
Alright. Thanks. I'll have to gather up some other tunes for Sunday.
