Does a jazz improvised solo fall under the laws of copyright?
I accept nw
Did not expect or realise that my first incomplete sentence had been sent.
My company WebOractice creats and publishes Apps and websit (webpractice.co.uk) which enables and motivates the practice of musical instruments. It us earky days but the potential is worldwide and thd reaction us very enciyraging. So far the musical mareial used has been out of copyright. We jntend to negotiate with various publishing companue
...carrying on...publishing companies permission and royalty rates.However, there seens to be a demand for us to apply our method to improvised solos....jazz to begin....We would need to display the music notation on screen...we would not use the actual recorded audio but creste a virtual performance via computer. Hope this is enough info. Please forgive me for further'pressing the send button' half way through.
The company name is WebPractice.....having sent the first half I was unable to edit...
Ok - in that case it would be copyright of the app
Or app owner/developer
Anything produced by the app can be subject to copyright
This is because it is the work of the app even if improvised
