My quest to get permission for my daughter to add a bit of one of her favorite songs as a sound track to a home video continues. The details are in my earlier posting, Reasonable use for a reasonable fee. On October 29, I received a very nice and friendly response to my request from Rob Hinton of Mesa Records. A response at all was a surprise, and a friendly response (one not written by lawyers) was an even bigger surprise. Unfortunately, it doesn't really advance my quest one way or another. Rob very nicely and helpfully informed me that I had written to the wrong music publisher. Here is his letter. The publication information I have for this comes from iTunes where I purchased the song in the first place, simply says "Dog Walk (5:38), Scott Henderson, Dog Party, (p) 1994 Mesa Blue Moon." I realize that it's been a while since I updated this, so I don't know whether I will get back to pursuing this any time soon.
