Starting with either Kong in Concert, which, from what I gather, would be easily licensable, or Relics of the Chozo if it's possible to license it. Or, of course, if you're feeling adventurous, just upload it rogue. (There are plenty of Super Metroid fan arrangements on Spotify already, so either they got successfully licensed or Nintendo just doesn't seem to care. But I assume OC ReMix respects the original copyright holders sufficiently to not post unlicensed songs.) From there you just continue on, trying to get as many albums on there as possible. That _would_ constitute a moderate amount of effort. No it _wouldn't_, because licensing even just a single album is not a "moderate amount" of effort. You're also ignoring the fact that OCReMix generating revenue on the work of hundreds of artists is a recipe for disaster. Distributing revenue, generating tax forms, etc. Not a single person on this site ever signed a legal contract giving rights to OCR to monetize their work, nor did they sign it waiving their right to the revenue so that OCR could keep it for itself. The submission policy covers distribution, it does not grant OCR any rights to use the music commercially and for profit. Also, just as an aside, if OCR does miraculously build all of the infrastructure needed for this project, it's now a commercial, for-profit entity and its eventual goal of getting the 501c3 non-profit status would go down the drain. timaeus222 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
