Hello Everybody! I am not new to VGM composing, but I'm new to remixing VGM, and new to this site too. So MY QUESTION is: Is it legal to make remixes of VGMs without permission? For ex.: How can I legally make say a Zelda VGM remix without Nintendo sueing me for not asking and because I don't have the permission of course? Thank you for your help! NOIZ Ctrl
Hi everyone, I just noticed that my metal remix of Pendulum's Blood Sugar received a copyright claim, presumably from their label (0:46 - 2:17 min, 5 different claimants, only one I was able to identify as some copyright management company from Berlin). No message from YT about this (meh!) - I noticed it by chance yesterday when I uploaded a new song. I'm quite aware that my "remix" is more like a cover version for 50% of the playtime, so it didn't surprise me too much that this happened. Maybe it has something to do with them announcing their reunion last December. I find it rather needy to claim a cover / remix with barely 150 views, but I guess that's how Youtubes automatic algorithms work and at the end of the day, it is technically illegal to publish a cover without paying royalties. So far, I just naively asssumed that no one cares as long as you don't monetize it. While this in particular doesn't bother me too much, it made me curious if some of you had similar experiences. Do actual, completely altered remixes get claimed as well? Apart from this, my other remixes never had issues. I hear Nintendo are super harsh when it comes to their stuff (at least in terms of video content). Would love to hear some stories.
