GUEST,chipinder Rewriting someone else's song (85* d) RE: Rewriting someone else's song 28 May 02

I can perhaps understand performing a song with a different approach but I recently heard a group who admitted writing a whole new verse to a song by a well known contemporary songwriter. If I had been that songwriter I think I would have been slightly offended that the not so well known group thought my song incomplete and worthy of improvement. How does copyright work in these situations? Chip
