Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone here knows anything at all about using quotes from TV shows in their songs and the possible ramifications of doing so?

We are in the studio at the moment and the producer has just raised some concern over our use of certain quotes during some parts of our songs.

We have used father ted, family guy, IT crowd and Bottom samples, literally no longer than about 3 seconds each one. We use them just as silly little one liners used to drop into a riff or something.

Anyone done anything similar and know if this is a major problem? We aren't a big band, just making our first album. I'm sort of assuming it's ok as let's be honest, we won't sell anything lol. If it makes a difference we are from the UK, I'm not sure if these issues are global or not?

Appreciate any help anyone can offer on this one
