Hi, I''m wondering, If I used music by Bach or Mozart in my game, would that be vialation of copyright? I know some modern games use it, I''m just not sure if I can use it for free, I mean, who am I going to pay the royalties too???? Thanks!

You would pay/get permission from whoever produced/preformed the work. Just cause it''s redone doesn''t mean it looses copyright.

I dont think so, I think it''s recopyrighted by the people who performed it only if they change it (by adding a guitar or somethin)

but check some type of copyright site just in case...

Dazyna and GoofProg are only sort of right, milou212 is pretty much dead on. The works of music themselves are not copyrighted, but most available recordings of them are indeed copyrighted by the performers. If you can find a non-copyrighted performance, or even less likely find someone to play/record it for you, you can use that.
