Good luck to those of you who are US residents. Go get that prize! (Don't forget to copyright your stuff properly first; it does sound a bit phony to me, I have to admit).
Ever since I got registered in a couple of web communities I keep receiving all kinds of crazy promotion offerings on an hourly basis. Just before checking this thread again I received an offer of being heard by a gazillion people worldwide (just because it's me - the one and only- of course) with all the consequences like being signed by the fanciest labels etc. The moment I started feeling myself more popular than Michael Jackson had ever been, I shifted my eyes to the bottom of the letter and saw a paragraph saying this out of this world offer would cost me only $10.
Now where's my fool's hat?
The mouse is now a rat!
Found this as I read the rules: No way am I doing this!
By submitting their contest materials, entrants agree that the Program shall be free to use the Materials as it sees fit without any fees or payments to entrants, and in any and all media and formats whether now known or hereafter devised, including as the theme to the Program and in advertisements and promotions for the Program, ABC or any related programming, and by license or otherwise to third parties. The Program and its licensees shall have the right to alter, arrange, adapt, modify, translate, prepare derivative works and otherwise change the Materials (including the submitted music/recording) as they see fit without permission from or payment to entrants.
It's interesting that this contest for Regis and Kelley has the stipulation shown above. So that means if they get 100,000 entries, and say 50 of them are top notch, they can use all 50. The winner of course gets the 100k but the 49 other "losers" may hear there music as the next huge theme for a new Disney film but will not receive a dime for it. Am I reading this right?

Just give you crappiest tunes to make the connect, then drop 'em like a hot potatoe.
I haven't had the need for a paid mouthpiece or agent for years, but shake hands and smile, tell them you think they're GGRR88888TTTT...and the whole time one eye is searching for the path ahead.
Of course this do it all at home from the computer w/o ever having to learn Japanes to show respect, or bow, or shake a hand.
I honestly think that people just need to get out more.
