Hey Kris,

I have not located any discussions on this issue so I thought I would ask. I realize we can not infringe on the hard work and authorship of others, but where does GMC stand on backing tracks coming from royalty free music? I listen to some royalty free stuff to get inspired when I start regurgitating my own music and was just curious

This is an interesting idea - unfortunately even the "creative common" lisence does not give you the right to use the material for commercial use (GMC would be classified as a commercial site since we charge for the content).

Below is a section from wikipedia - the way I see it we might be able to use royaltee-free music of the "Attribution" kind. This isn't something we would like to do without checking with a lawyer first - however, if we find lots of cool content that fall under the "Attribution" model we might look more into it! smile.gif Do you know any such material?
