A Digital DJ Tips reader, who I’ll keep anonymous, writes: “So a friend of mine made an edit / extended a track that hasn’t been released yet and sent it to me. I love the track but the thing is that it’s going to be released on quite a big progressive house/electro house label later this year.
“So as my friend doesn’t own the rights to the track, maybe that would say that I can’t play it live. But on the other hand he edited it so since it’s his work (based on another person’s work), so maybe it would be OK to play it, since he’s happy for me to do so? Help please!”
