Thread Name: half a copyright question
Subject: half a copyright question
The words to a song we are planning on recording came from a log book of the schooner, Industry, found by Jerry Bryant. Neil Downey added the tune and chorus. I know the words would be considered traditional and I know that the tune should be copyrighted by Neil. What should be said about the chorus that Neil wrote? Thanks, Barry
