LegitMix – Monetize Works Made Using Copyrighted Music

LegitMix – Monetize Works Made Using Copyrighted Music

Thanks to Phil Morse from DigitalDJTips we came across this new service called LegitMix. Legitmix is a simple-to-use browser-based software application. Artists use it to create Legitmix files for their works containing other people’s copyrighted source music. The Legitmix file contains no audio and can’t be played in any way. Fans use a Legitmix file, together with the Legitmix software, and their copies of the source music (in any digital format) to recreate an artist’s work on their computer. If a fan doesn’t already own the source music, the Legitmix music store provides an easy way to buy it. The recreated work is identical to the artist’s version and is automatically imported into a fan’s music library along with their purchased source music.
