No unlicensed covers in GH World Tour
Speaking with 1UP.com, Guitar Hero World Tour director Brian Bright has said that gamers won't be allowed to create and distribute covers of real-life track, unlicensed tracks; despite the addition of the create-a-song mode in Activision Blizzard's new music game.
Bright revealed to the website that moderators will be keeping a firm eye on the tracks being shared, and will pull copyrighted covers as soon as they're spotted, even if there are no record label complaints.
He offered: "We’ll be actively monitoring the site, and, obviously, if the copyright holder complains, Activision will pull it down immediately. We can’t condone people putting up covers of music. It’s really there for original content."
"If there’s a licensed song and someone holds the copyright to it, we’ll take it down regardless of whether or not someone complains," Bright adds.
