Another type of editing that may require edit rights is when you layer audio, but it depends on how you layer audio. So, for example, if you were to take a section from later in this song-- (music playing) --and play the beginning of that underneath a section from earlier in the song so that it remains in the sequence, that can work as long as you're doing it as an overlap, rather than a simple doubling up of two different parts of the song. So, for example, in a case like this, the outgoing section of the song comes from an earlier section of the composition than the incoming piece of the edit.
In that case, it's really more like a crossfade, even though you may play them both at full volume. However, where it may become an issue and may become something that requires edit rights is if you were to take the same piece and play it under the other section for the entire duration and then end them at the same place. In a case like this, let's say we liked the beat in this selected region, and we really wanted to supplement whatever was on our other track, so we built an edit that layered both parts of the track in the same place.
In a case like this you might need special edit rights. However, that can be a very effective technique to get a certain sound and it's a very valid technique, so if it gets what you need, it's sometimes worth doing that. Also, there are times where you may not need to worry about edit rights. For example, if you're cutting the temp track for a film or television show, you don't have to worry about clearing the audio and getting rights, because no one's ever going to hear it; it's really just used as an example internally.
