A word on using Music in your Demo!!
The internet has changed, and it’s no longer acceptable to just upload your demo to any website and start “selling” your voice without the correct copyright “music” clearance.
The use of music in Voice Demos has been a “grey” area for many years, but now it’s becoming clearer that as the internet is expanding, there are certain basic rules that must be followed unless you want to get into serious trouble and end up paying a BIG fine for “taking a risk” and thinking no one will find you.
The internet IS a big place and due to new technology, it’s now a lot easier to find “unlicensed” music used in Voice Demos.
Companies are now targeting voice over artists regarding their demos, and the websites that host voice over demos, for unauthorized use of music. These companies are sending letters and emails to voice artists and website owners regarding music on demos that have not been properly licensed, and requesting substantial statutory damage payments under the U.S. & U.K Copyright Act for infringement. Some music library companies allow free personal use of its music and sound effects library, but NOT for profit-making purposes or web broadcast.
So how can you put your demo on your website without getting in trouble?
