Hello, this question is probably answered somewhere else but I coudn't find the answer.

 

I have a JM4 Looper.

 

If I record a jam-track and add my own guitar on top of it.

What is the situation with performing rights?

 

Can I use it as sound in a computer-game for example?

Are the jam-tracks copyrighted in any way?

 

Best regards,

Thorsten

Hey There,

 

Take this with a grain of salt. I think it depends on who made the track and what their terms of use are. IIRC one site I used some time ago said it was cool to use them BUT you had to give them credit. When in doubt its always best to get written permission or make your own - what I did.

Thanks for the answer. I'm going to compete soon in a computer-game hackathon competition. There will be extra points for music.

So I want to make sure that I'm not violating anything if I play guitar along the tracks and use it.

I have looked through all the JM4 pdf-manuals, all text on the box and all text in the paper-manual.

It doesn't say anything about copyrights and how I am allowed to use the tracks I make on top of the built-in tracks.
