Susanne, Maybe I misunderstood things a little, but are there not artists complaining that CM / DB wont "give" them the rights to their albums back? I thought the argument was something along these lines

CM. We cant afford to issue all the back catalogue at one time, so are slowly working our way through the more commercially viable ones

ARTIST. Well can I have the tapes back for mine?

CM No, you can BUY them back.

As I said in a previous post, I have no inside knowledge of these things, but thought this was one (of many!) things that has p*ssed off some musicians
