**Asking this for a friend**

well here it goes

im hired by my school to make a senior video

so bascially i gotta fil this years events such and such

i want to use songs like

the final countdown
dancing in teh moonlight
lean on me

im only selling these to senior students for like 10$ and nobody else or anywhere else
they must contact me to purchase the film in school

must i email the record companies that own the songs?
Or wut if i only used parts of the song?

I've told him that basically, since he's getting profits out of this he normally should, but I'm not 100% sure about this.
Can anyone clear this up?

The record companies will never EVER know about a silly little senior video.

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.
serious response: if he gets caught, it's probably a minor offense, but he'll have to pay a fine. however, I doubt anyone could prove he actually charged money for 'em.


Copyright infringement is for pussies. Murdering the recording companies would be a hell of a lot cooler. then you can do any song you want

shouldn't really be a problem although technically you shouldn't use them
Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you cause
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
