If you create your own audio files (for example, of a performance or a derivative work) and it is not practical to include at least the title of my work, my name (Randy Fellmy) and a reference to my web site (www.coises.com or www.coises.com/songs), please try to include this information somewhere, such as on your own web site, where recipients of your file can find it.
If you re-distribute the MP4 files on this site, simply leave the credits intact.
If you create your own video files (for example, of a performance or a derivative work) include appropriate information in your credits.
Performances and sampling:
If it is practical to credit me and/or my web site, that would be appreciated. When this would not be reasonable (for example, if you have used only a small sample which is not readily identifiable in a work using dozens of samples), the attribution requirement is waived.
