Howard Jones Cecil Sharp's photos for sale. Illegal? (43) RE: Cecil Sharp's photos for sale. Illegal? 29 Sep 21


The Gettyimages website says "Photo by EFDSS/Heritage Images/Getty Images", which suggests to me that they've entered into a licensing arrangement with EFDSS to sell the images.

Copyright on sound recordings is complicated. Quite separate from any copyright in the material being recorded, there is copyright in the recording itself, which is shared between the publisher of the CD and other contributors (usually the performers, but possibly also the recording engineer and others with a significant involvement). If it is broadcast or played online then the broadcaster/website should have a licence, and royalties are paid from these. However to receive anything you have to be a member of the appropriate copyright organisation (in the UK, these are PRS/MCPS/PPL), unless you are prepared to go to court to try to enforce them yourself.

I believe YouTube has a licensing arrangement, and most of the CDs on there are as a result of deals with the record companies or their digital distributors.

Punkfolkrocker's late father's photos will be part of his father's estate. If there is no will he should look up the rules on intestacy.
