Celtaddict 'Royalties' on songs one didn't write (56* d) RE: 'Royalties' on songs one didn't write 24 Mar 10


MMario: you are right, that is a similarly ridiculous request!

My concern is not the legality of the claim (which is nil) but the survivor demanding a 'promise' from other musicians that they will not sing 'his/her' songs! (Marje: this direct demand is the way it becomes an issue.) I don't even have to deal with the survivor directly, but it makes a difference when trying to put on a concert or event with the musicians who feel obligated to make such a promise; I am not sure how best to deal with them, other than to hope that with time they will come to their senses.

Charley: I love 'let sleeping lions lie' and know this idea was not the wish of the original musician, who may be spinning briskly just now.
