I do some freelance work in video production. A client
who works in real estate asked me to shoot and edit a promotional branding
video for the agency she works at.
Me: So what kind of music should I look into? What’s the vibe you’re going for?
Client: We want to use any of these songs!
What she sent were YouTube links to very popular Top 40 songs her agency definitely didn’t have the rights to.
Me: Hey, these are great for inspiration, but we can’t use the actual songs because that would be copyright infringement.
Client: Copyright infringement is my bitch :P
She followed that up with a few more links to other songs.
