copyrighted music in videoblog videos

I don't worry about copyrighted music either. I figure if you're combining video beauty (even internal personal memory beauty in the videos) and sound beauty it's only creating even more beauty and can enhance the music too so it's a compliment to the artist imho. and as long as you're not making money off them I don't see the harm. I think of it as the visual mixtape of this age. I know the artist's perspective of copyright and have lots of music artist friends. but I think as long as you're respectful of it, it's all good. maybe others would not agree. as mentioned by one of the other comments, sometimes the music has such meaning to me - triggering memories & feelings in itself, that when you combine it with video/visual fragments of your own daily life it's the perfect soundtrack for the images. and sometimes even you've been reminded of the music during the day. surely that only highlights the power of the music for it to be able to trigger such feelings. how can it be wrong to want to capture them both together. of course the music is credited and links provided to the artist.

-- in reply to "leveling up" video by Michael Verdi. his daily talkbot.tv videos filmed in Second Life are amazing too.

it'd be interesting to hear other people's thoughts on this.
