    Exclamation

    Using any music that you do not own with slides and movies, training tapes, etc. is or maybe in violation of the copywrite laws.

    You better check before you add them to any visual aid program(s) or you may be committing a crime.

    It is not illegal if we are not selling it. It is for inter department use.

    You better check with the city, county or your personal lawyers to be sure.

    Red face music to the ears..or courts??

    I hope you won't mind my input here gentleman. I'm a junior member( I guess) and new to the sight, but I have been involved in this situation(in a round about way). Our P.R guy- who happens to be THE BEST!! is also putting a slide show together, and he too is looking for music. I can confirm that if it is for inter-departmental use, not for public distribution or sales by replication, it is okay. However, in the future if he would like to use this for any training videos which would reach into the public realm, he could contact the record label and explain his intent. Many companies are readily willing to acquiesce to your request due to the free exposure they recieve in return for their artists. That's advertising that pays boys!! Any-hoo, that's just my two cents worth. Thank you for the time, and thank you for all you do to lead the way for up coming fire fighters-like me Toodles!
