Subject: RE: Reflections/Criticism of Peter Kennedy
If a collector collects traditional songs from a singer, does he owe the singer anything? Obvioucly, if the singer wrote the song then yes, but if it's traditional, does the singer have any right to expect any kind of royalties? Just wondered what the position is.
