Even among thieves there is honor! Among the guild there is an understanding that they do not steal from one another. It is frustrating to see among artists that we are stealing from one another yet get upset should they be ripped off and not get paid for the work they publish. Please read the excerpts below. And note the links should you need music to add to your own site for publishing websites or videos. There are available places that you can turn to for music usage.

[stealing from other artists] every one realizes stealing music and using it to promote your business is still STEALING, right? It would NOT be ok if a local band or international musician stole one of your images to promote their new tour would it?
So, why is it ok to steal their music to promote ours? With affordable options out there like Songfreedom, Triple Scoop Music, The Music Bed, Animoto, there is no LOGICAL reason to steal music any more.
Its just irresponsible, disrespectful to other artists who work hard, and, well, stupid. There is just no justification for it. Sorry.
Behind The Shutter ***UPDATE*** since this was released… there has been posts on jasmine page… more lies being told about how she had permission, the video girl did it, that she was never contacted by song freedom etc. THEN magically, the post and video were removed from everywhere… not something you would do if you had permission. End of day, very disappointing to see someone who should be leading embrace unethical behavior again. i am happy it got taken down because we can all agree – stealing from other artists is never ok.
