    Just a little thing though: acappelas4u has tons of acapellas yeah. But all (or the majority) of them are from copyrighted material. Which means you could mess around for fun, but not if you intend to sell your music after.

    I don't think this is 100% true, I'm assuming you can use them if you get them cleared by the owner/label. I might be wrong tho.

    You're right. You can use them if you get them cleared with the owner/label. Thing is: it's difficult (for what I've read, not that I needed to) to actually get some bigger companies to even answer your contact. You may want to use someone's services to do that for you, but let's face it: if you're a bedroom producer (like some of us) would it be worth the hassle?

    Oh, just reminded: when I first started making music, I did a horrendous remix for a song from the game Silent Hill 4. Sent the composer (Akira Yamaoka) an e-mail through his website and also the company that own the rights to SH series (Konami). Never got a reply.

    I don't really know much about it as we havent had to do that but i bet it can be missions sometimes. I always think of Artisan by Lomax tho, straight up Family Guy sample; i've wondered if that was cleared, or actually thinking about it if they even needed to. Done a tiny bit of reading and it seems like a murky area.
