On my thread "A Cautionary Tale...", Germancomponist posted a story about copyright issues re: online music. Government vs. ASCAP is the general topic.
Thanks for the story link, Germancomponist--Interesting!
Something else caught my eye in that PDF document--A story about a random music generator which is supposed to be able to replace the composer. I followed the posted URL:
And here's a quote from the site's explanation of the program:
"...Virtual Music Composer does not requires knowledge of composing.
Virtual Music Composer makes it easy without any programming...LvB's X features an exceptional simple interface. Everything is in front of you!
"Virtual Music Composer incorporates an easy-to-use program...designed to create a legal and authorized music score for all media platforms...seeking to develop original music compositions: television, radio, advertisements, documentaries, motion pictures, background sound illustrations etc.
Virtual Music Composer, as music maker software, is an unlimited resource..."
How 'bout Them apples?!
I'm going to download the demo version and see what happens with it. As time permits, maybe I'll give it a full test drive and post the results here.
