Music Copyrights

I can't produce music. I suck at it.

Other people can though, and I can produce movies that work with that music. The problem, however, is that I can't use that music in my movie. Therefore, my work is worthless.

Why can't I, a poor chap with a burning desire to produce films, use someone's music in film, as long as I don't profit from it? Why should their greed limit my right to use something beautiful in a film, especially if this is no longer the intent of the artist, but of their corprate lawyers.

As long as I give credit where it is due, what wrong have I done?
