  • Where would I need to go to get permission for this?

    I know that I have an enormously small chance of getting this allowed, but I'm making a short film for a contest, and I would really like to use the Happy Song. Can anyone tell me where I can get the rights, or even if I'd be able to?

    I know it's a small chance, and I probably won't end up getting it. I'm just wondering, because this would be great to add in, since I mostly do music videos anyway.

    Do you need rights if it's non-profit?

      You should still ask permission, regardless.

      Some contests require all music, etc. to be authorized for liability reasons (video may be shown on local news, etc).

        drop a note to feedback@remedygames, but it may take a few days for a response...

            Oh, and it's for a prize of 500,000$. I probably won't win, but even so, I think that's still considered for profit.

              You might want to check the contest rules; if they're offering a price like that, they probably want you to make sure you have your copyrights and licenses in order for anything you submit. (And if they don't, that might be a bit of a red flag.)

                  I don't mean that they would scam you, I mean that if they're really offering a prize of half a million dollars, this has to be some kind of a major organization, and they probably want to cover their own ass legally by requiring the submissions to contain no material that is copyrighted by somebody else.
