I have a question regarding the no covers thing... Do video game covers count? There are bands that cover video game music HOWEVER, they do not keep the names of the original songs nor do they make any reference whatsoever to the original music. This technically wouldn't be a cover, it would just be song that sounds really similar to the video game song?
Alright, also what about a band such as The Black Mages? The lead member of the band was the person who made the original songs for the video game company to put in their games, now he and his rock band make prog. rock covers of them adding whole new choruses, guitar solos and original verses. What would be the policy regarding that? (I know that is pretty confusing, sorry)
alrigght thanks. Sorry for so many random questions, but I want to send letters about the RBN to a couple bands like that, but I wanted to be sure the bands, Harmonix, or myself would not be sued should they agree.
