    "Fair Use" Pavarotti Music in a promo video

    Hi everyone! I'm editing a promo video for the web and I'd like to use the Luciano Pavarotti Music for about 10 seconds. The client is in India and he will show the video on his Indian website. Here I come with 2 questions: 1) How long can be the fair use? I remember 10 seconds but I'm not sure. 2) I'm wondering if the fair use policy in terms of time is the same in India. I sent an email to the The Indian Performing Right Society asking the same question, but still no answer. Many thanks in advance for your help. Laura

    As for web use if it is available in a country then the countrys copyrite laws are in effect for that country.

    So if it is copyrighted for the USA then you would have to block it there ... then there are the syncing issue as music sync to video has its own rules ...and the big concern is how would you like it if an artist used your video work  for something that only benifitted them  and did not ask or clear it from YOU ... bottom line dont pirate music.... it's not fair to the artist

    Check to see what old pieces are in the public domain. There are lots of great tenors out there from years past.

    1. Beniamino gigli 2. Enrico Caruso 3. Frank Lopardo 4. Franco Corelli 5. Galliano Masini 6. Jose Cura 7. Mario Lanza 8. Pedro Lavirgen 9. Richard Tucker 10. Rodrigo Garciarrovo

    Most have the same repertoire!
