The company I have been using for most of the backing to my songs is Karaoke-Version.com. When I started this late last year, I contacted them directly as I knew if I were doing a song a day, the cost would mount up. I wanted to see if I could get any discounts. They didn’t help, but they were happy for me to continue buying and using their backing tracks. I’ve emailed several times and always given a link to, The Demented Road Studios, where my songs are saved for my daily challenge.
Today, from another company, tencymusic.com, which I now know is a related company to karaoke-version.com, Ricisio.com, Karafun.com, Jamzone.com and Karaoke.com, has told me that not only they can not help but want me now to pay Copywrite and a licensing fee.
I have always been upfront and open about what I was doing with this challenge, and Karaoke-Version has never once objected but always encourage me to buy more. I don’t ask anyone to pay for these songs and never would. I pay for all the backing tracks and equipment I use from my own monthly pension! I do this to beat my dementia and, on the way, hopefully, give pleasure to others in the process.
I’m devastated by this company’s attitude!
