The catch is listening to 120 beats per minute of cumputerised beats puctuated by sampled vocals of people with real talent.

Of course all donations to the Performing Rights Society would presumably be gratefully received ?

Unless the artists have been notified and offered their services free ?

Dan I've just had an email from a member suggesting this may be illegal. Do you have licence/authority to distribute? If not I'll have to delete the topic and thread:-(

Well it's a common practise to make mixes but it appears to be a problem when you come to share. Here's a really good article on the matter Mix swapping
I wasn't around when the software thread got right out of hand and don't want the same to happen here.

I know where Pete is comming from, in that obviously he can't knowingly allow dodgy things (or potentially) dodgy things such as copyright infringement take place on his site...BUT...notice it was a big but as soon as I followed the link and saw the monica RIAA I just groaned out loud. These are the people currently being sued for operating as a cartel in the USA whilst they in turn sue 12 year olds for thousands of dollars in punitive damages. Hmmmm. Never mind starting a thread on these guys I could start a web site. I'm with warb. Copyright used to mean fair use. Mixing to my mind is fair use. Much like making a composite using bits of other images is not the same thing as ripping of someones picture.
Just'n opinion...

mixing might be fair use but redistributing another artists work (even if it's only parts of it) infringes on that artists intellectual property rights and is in fact illegal.
"It is illegal to copy or redistribute copyrighted material whether in part or in whole." - Sound familiar

found this on the djmag site, quite interesting:


Words: Terry Church

The Record Industry Association of America (RIAA) has launched a new campaign against DJs in an attempt to control copyright infringement.

They have already confiscated $100,000’s worth of mix CDs from independent record stores across the US.

DJ mix CDs, sold in almost every independent record store are on the whole unlicensed and technically illegal to distribute. However, DJs and producers alike often rely upon these illegal mixes in order to gain credibility, and to promote themselves to the general public.

The practice is in fact approved of by most producers who see it as fundamental to the survival of the dance scene - even if it is their tracks that are being copied and played without permission.
This latest attack by the RIAA is therefore hypocritical – they claim that their pursuit of copyright infringement is primarily in the interest of the artist, yet most dance producers actually approve of and rely upon this illegal distribution.

The dance scene relies upon these ‘illegal’ ways to survive, and it seems that the only people who actually care about this particular copyright infringement are not the artists themselves but the record companies – who are only involved in the dance scene for profit.


what i also find interesting is, i myself have posted mix tapes on message boards and i have seen alot of other people too for many years and this is the only time i have seen it cause a debate. but i do understand where you are coming from. all i wanted to do was share my lovely cd. boo hooooo.

shall i delete my photos and get my coat now? ;o)
