Unfortunately bandcamp does not handle mechanical royalties (or streaming) and artists are not supposed to sell anything but songs that they own the copyright to. As such, NIN will not be compensated for the sale of these covers.

Actually, deathbringer, Inversephase has worked out licensing with Nine Inch Nails for this, both for digital sales and for the CDs he's selling. It was apparently a pain in the ass, and ended up costing him more than he initially anticipated, but this release is all above board.

Good to hear. I thought about qualifying that statement but 1) it's still part of bandcamp's TOS that bands are supposed to own the copyright of the music they're selling there and 2) I figured cutting a deal directly with the band (and label?) would be a major pain in the a$$ and unlikely. Guess I was partially wrong on the latter. But glad to hear they band is doing it legit anyway.

deathbringer,

The bandcamp TOS at http://bandcamp.com/terms_of_use states: "Are covers OK? You must own or control all rights to everything you upload. That means covers are out, unless you have a written license or authorization from the artist to upload the cover to Bandcamp and grant us the rights in the terms below. Do not upload cover songs unless you have obtained all permissions and authorizations in writing!"

Therefore, I am also clear on #1 because I've cleared everything. EVERYTHING. Down to the likeness of the 6502 on the front cover (even though the photo is my own).

Good to hear - thanks for chiming in to clear that up! And kudos for doing it legit. It's so rare that it's easy just to assume that it wasn't handled properly. My mistake.
