I am having a bit of a dilemma when it comes to the music of my video game, my struggle relies on what do I have to do to get the "rights" of a certain song. What is the process should I follow.
I have heard a song on Soundcloud which I think suits my game theme, the first thing that came into mind is asking the author if I could use his song on my game(giving credits to him on the credits section). If he says I can not use his song, how do I have to approach him with the intention trying to make him sell the rights of that song to me so I can use it on my game (also giving credits to the main author of it).
I am a bit new to this things and I do not know how to handle them properly, I would appreciate a bit of help.
Sorry in advance because I struggle to explain what is in my mind.
