Hiya fellow game devs, this one's kinda off-topic but it's related to my rpg maker game, so I'll post it here-

If I were to theoretically compose a carnival song for my game's OST that utilizes mostly the leitmotif (or melody) from Entry of the Gladiators and occasionally a leitmotif from another song I forgot the name of, with occasional bits of original melody in between, would it could as an original song I could put in a commercial game or would the use of the leitmotifs make it not fair use and therefore I could not use it in a commercial game?

Thank you in advance! ^w^

Julius Fucik has been dead for 115 years, so anything he composed is squarely in the public domain.

Doing RPG Maker News for 10th April, 2021. :LZScheeze: (Improving on the thumbnails, by using assets from the day's news.)
Just discovering the forum.
Since Final Fantasy VII has been trending today, decided to make a series of my favorite bars in the OG game! Check it out:

At 2021, we are now farther from the 1980's than they were from the 1950's. Consider that the next time you long for a 1980's song, when you thought your grandpa's taste for 1950's music was "outdated".
no, not my duct tape, anything but my duct tape!
