The up and coming musician’s obsession with exposure is the exact reason why music these days isn’t selling like it used to. Exposure means nothing. Absolutely nothing. Trust me, it’s the bitter voice of experience. Haha!
I don’t think you realize how deep this goes. It’s more than uploading “your music”, that normally means songs you’ve bought from the google play store, amazon, or the iTunes store. Not to mention illegally downloaded music people have. There would be copyright issues and etc.
So unless Episodes spends millions on creating their own streaming service or buy a ton of rights to certain music, this will never happen. Just saying.
I doubt that. It consumes a crap ton of time and energy. It would be easier to just strike some sort of a deal with a record label or two OR perhaps start your own music store… Both of which most likely are expensive as…
I feel the same amount of time and energy their putting into reviewing images and overlays they could use for music. I’m quite sure they could get permission from some legal website to use their music. Not all musicians have copyrighted music. There’s probably some musician dying to have their music promoted, who’ll easily give them access to their music for free or for a small cut.
It might take some digging but nothing comes easily.
Just think about it, the added music could heighten the experience readers have.
Leading more people to download the app, possibly get addicted to the game and BUY passes. Bringing in more money to contribute to other things.
But, then again, idk how big the episode interactive team is.
So, yes it could be stressful.
Well, forgive me for stating my opinion so late, but I just want to clarify something real quick. Depending on the country, some people the second they create something, it’s copyrighted. Australia, for example, has the “If you made it, it’s yours.” rule. It’s what thankfully saved me a lot of trouble over the years. And my opinion on the whole, “Add your own music” thread is both nah and maybe. The reason why EPISODE doesn’t is because of copyrighted music, if you didn’t make it, then it’s not yours. Unless it’s for sale for the right to own it, otherwise, it’s copyrighted. But EPISODE doesn’t want people who don’t understand this to get into all kinds of trouble regarding copyright and get them in trouble,
