Music rights notice

Laser artists have designed their shows with a specific song in mind. However, these are only suggestions.
      You are free to readjust each show in Showtime so it can work with other songs of your own choosing.
      If you use the artist-suggested songs, then be aware of the complex issue of music rights. Pangolin cannot give you specific advice. But here are some general tips:
   
    • You are probably OK if you buy the CD containing the suggested song, and play it in the privacy of your home or laser studio.
   
     • Once you begin to play the song in public, or for commercial purposes, then you should be obtaining music rights. These may include both performance rights and synchronization rights (so you can display images that are designed to go with the music).
   
     • For most shows (songs), Pangolin provides only laser frames, a show control file, and the artist's suggested song. Pangolin is not performing the music, nor are we presenting synchronized images and music. Therefore, you are fully responsible should any music rights issues arise.
   
     • For a few shows (songs), Pangolin includes music on the LD2000 Installation CD. We have obtained laser-related rights which transfer to most clients. Details are in the text files located in each song's directory.
   
     • You can purchase royalty-free music from many sources. It is relatively simple in Showtime to readjust the show timing to work with a similar piece of music. Thus, if you have any questions or concerns, use royalty-free music instead of the artist's suggested songs.


 

Pangolin gets you started fast! LD2000 comes with over 120 free laser shows and demos. Here is a partial list of the show names, plus the suggested songs for use with these shows. Click here to see sample videos of some of these shows.
        Because of copyright-related distribution laws, Pangolin does not normally supply the music for these shows. You will have to purchase the CDs yourself. It is probably easiest to shop at an Internet service such as CDNow or Amazon.com.

 

You can easily find these CDs at Amazon.com, by using their "Wish List" feature. To find Pangolin's Wish List, click here. (Or, from the Amazon.com home page, click on the "Friends and Favorites" item in the bar at the top of the page. Under "Search for Friends", enter the name "Pangolin".)
     Once you see our Wish List, select the CDs you want. When you check out, be sure to send them to yourself -- the default is to send them to us, but then we already have the CDs! You can select CDs even if the Wish List says they have already been purchased by others.


        You may be able to legally compile these songs onto your own CD-R recordable disc, if you own the CDs and the disc is not further duplicated or sold. 
        The songs, "Eternity", "World In Motion", "Again!", "Special!FX" and "Linea" are already included on the Lasershow Designer 2000 CD. Pangolin has secured laser rights to these songs so you can play them as audio tracks, right off the CD.
        Graphic icons indicate award winners. Shows which are especially popular are listed below in blue.
