I mostly write music for Film, Video, Games, Web, and Media projects. When not working on projects for my clients I make quirky indie dance / synthpop / techno tunes.
Is it illegal to use a commercial song in your game (that you intend to sell)
Thanks for the comment. Allow me to clarify some of my points. Re-creating an existing instrumental means copying the music note-to-note. While the 100% likeness is indeed hard to achieve, depending on the skills of the producer, it may sound very very close (that is, I can't copy a 40 piece orchestra exactly but I can make a convincing imitation). Sound-alikes imitate the style and the sound of an existing track without copying the original music / melody. Cheers!
