Hi Lois,

Though I am certainly not a lawyer, here's the rule of thumb I use when deciding whether or not it is OK for podcasting:
Is it public domain?
Is it available on Garageband or Podsafe Music Network?
Do you have permission from the artist who "owns the masters" and otherwise has full rights to grant you permission?

If the answer to at least one of the questions above is "yes" then you should be fine to podcast.

Subject: [bct] Confused about music we can use

I'm very confused about what music is allowable for use say, for intro or end to
a podcast. May we use perhaps a very old piece of classical music, perhaps by a
performer or performers who are no longer living, if we use only a portion of it
and we are talking over it? I so far haven't been able to define the lines.
