     There have been cases of wedding photographers getting sued for using music online and in their wedding videos that are produced for commercial gain, including the Tony Romo wedding video that was published on YouTube this year using Coldplay’s “Fix You”. Apparently, the wedding photographer didn’t have permission to use Coldplay’s copyrighted track and it cost him a settlement. While Coldplay’s “Fix It” might only cost $0.99 on iTunes, this is for personal use only, and not for commercial use. A wedding photographer/videographer might have to pay a significant fee (in the thousands or even tens of thousands of $) to use a popular music song in a wedding video or slideshow.
