This week we were challenged to remix something, anything. So of course, I knew I had to pull out a playlist stacked with remixes. But in doing so, the whole concept of remixing—altering a track that is usually owned by someone else and then slapping your name onto it—got me curious.
(Honestly, “curious” is just a polite way of me telling you that I wandered down a rabbit hole of grey legal areas. Sorry, I watch a lot of Suits.)
Coming off a lecture that was focused on copyrights, patents, and content ownership, I suddenly had a new lens to view the music industry with. And in case I’ve got you wondering too, check out this crash course on copyrighting music below:
The more you know, huh.
Also, if you haven’t already, check out our remix playlist, here!
Til next time.
