I'm totally excited for Rock Band Network, but there was one thing that I had on my mind.
I'm in a weird position here. Uh, my dad was the vocalist in a metal band in the eighties called Cirith Ungol. Now, they had the first three of their four releases on Metal Blade Records: Frost and Fire, King of the Dead and One Foot in Hell. The fourth has changed hands a couple of times between companies, but the album is called Paradise Lost.
What I'm wondering is, if we had the master tracks to the songs from the albums in our possession, could we just do whatever we wanted with them, including charting and releasing them onto Rock Band Network? Would we run into some legal troubles? Apparently, my dad knows where the masters might be, and he thought the news of possibly getting his music on Rock Band was intriguing.
