Please remember you must have permission to do ANY MATERIAL that you use for contest events. We have agreements with many companies to use their materials for IHSSA contest. For example, if you use recorded music for background in Mime or One Act (unless it is ASCAP music or you have purchased the BMI license) you must have permission to use it. Also, NEVER allow contest selections to be placed on YouTube or the internet. It is the responsibility of the local school to secure all performance rights for contest selections. Be sure you have permission to do material before you start a selection for contest. Get the proper rights to do material for contest. Secure permission.
