I am curious as to the laws (Canadian based) surrounding remixing music. A friend and myself have been working on a song, but it uses five aprrox 10 second clips from another song. These clips are used as loops for some of the background music, but our own vocals are placed on the track as well as additional instrument loops created by us.
We wanted to provide the song with a video project free for viewing on the internet, but I would like to know what we need as far as permissions from the copyright holders. Or does this constitute fair use in any shape or form?
