Obtaining the rights pt2

  1. 1. OBTAINING THE RIGHTS TO USE THE SONG PT.2To enable us to use the song we have chosen, we had to search for the company that owns the rights to the song (Wixen Music) and ask for their permission.Here is a copy of the e-mail thread between Naomi Asher (Wixen Music) and Roxi following the first e-mail Roxi sent on behalf of the group.
  2. 2. From: Roxannah Linklater [] Sent: Tuesday, October 09, 2012 11:36 AM To: Beth Wijayarathna Subject: Dear Sir/Madam, I am e-mailing you seeking permission to use the song Undone - The Sweater Song by Weezer in my A Level media studies coursework. My group and I are creating a music video, and, as massive fans of Weezer, it would be excellent if we were able to use this song. We are not intending to use this song for any other purpose other than that already stated, and is for no commercial or financial gain. It is purely for the use of our coursework and any posting of the video will be for evaluation purposes only. We will clearly state that this is an amateur production and identify yourselves as the license holders for the song. We appreciate that you get many requests of this kind and are very grateful for your help and support. Yours, Roxannah Linklater

  4. 4. From: Roxannah Linklater [] Sent: 19 October 2012 11:08 To: Naomi Asher Subject: RE:Hi Naomi, Thanks so much for your reply. In brief, our aim is to film a music video for an existing song. We thought that this song was highly appropriate as weve been inspired by many other videos of the band, and would like to create a video with a light hearted tone. This project is worth 40% of our final A Level grade, and we will not be using this song for any other purpose other than to aid our project. Thank you, Roxannah Linklater
