I converted a previously written hub to a video hub.

    How do you properly cite the music used in a video?  I found the music on a "free" download site.  I cited this site as the source of the music.  I believe I should have given credit to the song artist.  This being my first video; I am unsure of the correct procedure.  I could change the citations, but it would require a lot of steps.  Thanks for any input.

    I think how you have it cited is fine.  You have provided a link to both the photos and music.  I've never converted a hub to a video hub, so I'm not certain.  Love the video and music, it looks and sounds great.
    Your poem is beautiful.

    If you wanted to give credit to the song artist, you could add name of song/artist below the video.
    Music: Goodbye Stranger/Supertramp   (or give specific names of songwriters, Richard Davies, Roger Hodgson)

      Thanks for your reply and I'm pleased to know that you enjoyed the video.  I think I may do as you suggested and add the artist information to the video.  I believe I will have to unpublish the hub and actually create a new video using my saved one as a template in order to accomplish that though.  This is my first go at making a video, so I am learning a bunch with this.  lol  It's tempting just to add the artist information to the title of the video so as to avoid all this extra work. smile  Thanks again for your input!  Have a wonderful day.

        You can replace videos in video hubs - upload a new video in the video section - then edit the video in the hub and select the new hub...

    If it means you have to redo the video, I would not bother.  I thought perhaps you could add it after your tribute line that shows underneath the video itself.  That isn't part of the video, correct?

    I wouldn't worry about it since you did leave a link to the source of music on the video.  smile

    If you downloaded the music from a free music website, it may not actually mean you have the rights to use the music on a commercial article - if you can I'd contact the artist and get their permission to use the music, or check the fine print of the music site to see if there are restrictions on using the music.

      I was afraid I would find this to be true.  I bet you are correct too.  It would really surprise me to find out that they allow people to play their music in a video that they are not collecting royalties from.  Well...I guess I must take out the music.  That's a real bummer.  I wonder if leaving it in there would result in something very negative to me...like fines or legal actions?  I wonder how the website I found it on can offer all that music to people?  Surely they are profiting from it themselves too.  How would a person even go about contacting the artist?  Thanks for your comments and info.

        You can go to their official website and send an email - I did this for a successful photographer - I explained why I was using his photograph - he was happy to allow me to use the photo as long as I attributed it to him....

          Wow.  I will give it a try.  I guess the worse they can say is no....and then sue me....oh...lol.  I imagine they tell you to take it down first and then prosecute you if you don't.  I don't know, but I love, love, love their song and hope there's a way I can use it.  Have a great day.

      Yes, you are probably right, simey.  I forgot that it would be used for commercial use.  She could try to contact their press or media representative which is sometimes listed on the website.  There may be info on the site itself about copyright.

      I had to contact a songwriter's royalty and copyright organization to gain permission to use a specific photograph.  I contacted their press representative. They granted permission by asking that I leave a link to their site and mention that he is a member of their organization.  They also complimented me on the hub and thanked me for writing and keeping updated info about one of their successful member's songs!

        This is very encouraging news rebekahELLE.  Thanks for sharing.  I'm following both of you people now.  smile  I appreciate both of your comments.

    Glad to help, and thanks.   I don't see contact info on the official Supertramp site. Roger Hodgson is no longer with the group, but he does have media info and contact info on his website.  You may try to go through him and see what happens, as he is listed as one of the songwriters.

      Okay!  Thank you so very much for that info.  I sent a request.  I hope they say yes.  That was so nice of you to look that up.
