Last christmas a friend of mine wrote alternative lyrics to a well known classic christmas song. I plan on compiling about 10 or 15 songs altogether, including the one she wrote, and putting them onto a CD for her gift this year. I can't sing so I posted an ad on Craigslist asking if anyone would be willing to sing just for the credit and I received an email from several people including a band that wants to sell it at their concerts along with their CD. I have no idea what to do. Can I sell the CD if it's all parodies(music would be acoustic/played by the band, lyrics sound like the songs but no copied sentences or anything.) I don't know anything about copyright laws or royalties or, well, anything. I just wanted to do this for fun and it has become somewhat of a headache. Can anyone help?? Please help!!!!
