Hi

. . . . I have 5 cover tracks I'm doing I have already bought the licenses for all. Gotta keep it legal you know, what must I do when it's time to launch these tracks, do I need to provide magix with copy's ? . . . .

As you have the commercial licences, just publish the tracks.

There are a couple of potential issues however:

  1. Permission from the original authors of the works you are covering - you may need this.
     
  2. You may get claims of copyright infringement for a similar sound, phrase or rift within the composition - with possible cease and desist or requests for payment - this is unavoidable if you have used the same, or similar loops, as the claimant.

    You can counter these claims by pointing out:

    a. any similarities in any section, phrase or rift in the composition are coincidental given the source of the loops

    b. an individual does not have the right to claim copyright on a loop - the copyright for all Soundpool
    loops belongs to Magix.

    c. you, and the claimant should if their compositions are being used for financial gain, have a licence to
    use the Soundpools commercially.
