Re: Music Cues Copyright Infringement Avoidance?

Sony has nothing to do with it. Star Trek is owned by CBS Studios, which is a subsidiary of the CBS Corporation, whose parent company is National Amusements, Inc.

But you have a point about the music. Using the original recordings of the music or sound effects would be analogous to incorporating stock footage or clips from an episode, rather than creating new material based on the same characters or designs. It does seem that it wouldn't be quite the same thing.
