Copyright Infringement, Payola and Mic Types
Visit the blog by clicking here University Copyright Office Copyright Office Are you familiar with copyright infringement? In this episode talk about copyrights and infringement on the "Ask Simply Mary" podcast today. The above links reference copyright infringement and also link you to the copyright office so you can register your work to obtain valid copyrights. Copyright infringement is the act of violating any of the copyright owner's exclusive rights granted by the federal copyright act. There are certain elements that need to be in place for a copyright infringement to occur. This is discussed in the podcast as well. Remember there are legal penalties for copyright infringement. You need to keep your work safe and also, do not attempt to  tamper with other peoples work. It can come back to bite you! Also, today we discussed payola. It is easy for artists to think they can buy followers and spins for their music or brand to obtain fans. This my friend is called payola. This type of  "advertising"  is so wrong, and it can backfire on you. As per the Wiki: "Payola, in the music industry, is the illegal practice of payment or other inducement by record companies for the broadcast of recordings on commercial radio in which the song is presented as being part of the normal day's broadcast, without announcing that there has been consideration paid in cash or in kind for its airplay adjacent to the recording's broadcast. Under US law, a radio station can play a specific song in exchange for money, but this must be disclosed on the air as being sponsored airtime.[1] There are many artist services out there that boast they can bring you to the top for the right price. Services do not always deliver the things we are expecting, just a friendly FYI.   If you are attempting to use money to get you where you want to be it probably won't end well. I'm sure you have seen similar stories in the news recently about payola and college scandals. This is the same thing. Finally for the last part of the podcast we are going to discuss microphones and the different types that are out there. I will be referencing a question from Quora on this matter to bring a little more more clarity to the subject. Wikipedia  If you're looking for information on microphones here is a link to help you out as you learn more. Above will take you to wikipedia for more in depth breakdowns of all the different types and uses. LANDR Blog Post on Microphone Types The types we will be talking about are: Dynamic Microphones Large Diaphragm Condensor Microphones Small Diaphragm Condensor Microphones Ribbon Microphones If you would like more in depth information about these types and uses, reference the article by clicking on the link above.
