I know the title's kind of bad, but I have a lot to ask about, and it was hard to capture in a short sentence. Okay, the backstory: I have a side-project thing that's gone on for a while with my friend Sleeper Cell and I. The project is called Industrial Platypus and we just released our first CD (independently, of course.) called Delicious Platy-Pie, and are working on more material as time allows..I'm a huge advocate of free music, funded by non-demanded donation only, so the album is available completely free on CD (all mailing expenses, CD expenses, case expenses, ink expenses, and time, at my own loss), and available for download online. It's pretty amateur stuff, but here are my questions. The first is, would anyone be willing to help (if so, you can just PM me) make cover art for this album, and possibly future albums? I would be willing to pay, via paypal, if desired, for any help given. The second is, as an independent artist, with not a lot of money, how would be the best way to make cover art, print it, as well as track listings and stuff, without having to spend hours cutting stuff out and such? That's kind of bad wording, but I'm sure you can see what I mean...Basically, I want a way to deliver a good number of CDs, with the cover art and track listings, at not a huge huge loss (I don't know, let's say...$100 for every 1000 CDs distributed. That number is just made up off the top of my head). The CDs are given out by a locally owned CD store/coffee bar, whom I am very appreciative of for his help and support. Can anyone offer me some answers for my ridiculously badly-structured questions? If anyone wants to hear, www.myspace.com/industrialplatypus is the easiest way to shamelessly plug. It's really mediocre, amateur work, done with Fruity Loops and Logic, and is only a small pass-time type thing. With all that aside, here's my bigger question: Is it illegal to share self-made remixes of other people's material without permission? Say I'm a member of remix.nin.com and such, and Trent gives those multi-tracks to people for remixing purposes...If I make a remix that is my own, but is still a remix of his material, is it illegal for me share? Even if I am not making money on it? Thanks for the help, guys Hope that was legible. Oh, and while I'm posting a meaningful thread, I'd like to extend my sincerest apologies to all of Macrumors for my inappropriate behavior causing me to get banned recently. I'm taking extra care now, and I'm appreciative of everyone's help here.
