Andy,

Yeah, yeah, I know. I met the bloke once and didn't like him much. And I feel sorry for Nic Jones, though if he's getting the full range of benefits he's entitled to he may well have an income comparable to what he might have expected from royalties if he'd signed a different deal (with Bill Leader, who originally recorded him)- not that it's any of my (or your) business. But one of the major gripes against Bulmer seems to be that he's sitting on the tapes of lots of folk records from the 60s and 70s - which he presumably paid someone for. Does it really matter that much in the great scheme of things that you can't buy the first Swan Arcade LP anymore?

Or at least , IF he is going to permit them access to what ,in my opinion , is THEIRS they cant make any money out of it !

Well, there's the rub, isn't it? If he does own the rights how did he come by them? I can understand how artists may be frustrated at not having access to their own old recordings but presumably no-one forced any of them to sign their rights away at gunpoint. I would love to be able to buy 'Rout of the Blues' but I missed it first time round and I've managed to live without it.

if he does own the rights how did he come by them

In the case of Leader and at least one other label, by buying bankrupt stock from the receiver. His legal entitlement to the rights is not in question.

Hasn't this all been gone through enough times already?

Yes,Rout of the Blues is a CDR. No, there will be no royalties paid until a copy is sold. A while back, I asked anyone who's been stiffed by Celtic Music to notify me, and I'd make good on royalty payments--so far, no applicants.

And yes, CAMSCO Music carries all of Celtic Music's releases. Including the Leader label, Dambuster label and a bunch of others.

Dave Bulmer is just a subject the begrudgers love to whine about in order to be accepted by their peer group. It is an unwritten rule of the contemporary English neo-folk scene that one must have the Folk Roots version of the anti-Bulmer rap down, if one is to be accepted down at the folk club.

The rest of the world music community be damned, of course. By now, everyone should know that only England's opinions matter...

It's got nothing to do with England's opinions. It's a beef that many people on the folk scene have with Dave Bulmer. If he is selling CDs and not passing on royalties they have a right to whinge, in fact thay have a right to whinge anyway - in this case they have a reason to whinge.

But why pick on England, anyway? A look at Google will reveal he has upset Scots and Irish as well.

Just about any one who deals in folk music recordings, work with Messers Celtic Music/ D.Bulmer, big name artists and agences will sell them any amount of material.

Bulmer doesn't pay royalties, because he isn't required by law to pay them. When you buy the rights to the music, that means the rights to the royalties.

The demonization of Bulmer is done by people who believe he should, out of the kindness of his heart, pay the royalties to musicians who signed the rights to their music away decades ago, so no longer have a right to be paid royalties.

If a legal case against him could be won, we'd have seen it done by now. It can't, so people whinge about what a bastard he is.

And BTW, I'm not suggesting he isn't a bastard. I'm just saying the whole demonization of Bulmer has been a tempest in a teapot by musicians who weren't savvy enough to hand onto the rights to their music. Which includes a large segment of the folk scene in Britain. Including some who were even warned off Bulmer in advance, but signed it all over to him anyway.

There is no cure for stupidity, as they say.

Let's keep something straight-- Royalties are due only when a CD is sold . If one wishes to castigate Mr. Bulmer for not having sold the CDs, that's ones's right...but then don't bitch about royalties not being paid. And now that Celtic Music has released some of the long-awaited titles, a boycott is the sure way to make sure that royalties won't be paid.

I'd strongly suggest that artists signing a contract with any publisher insist on a clause that states that if publication stops for a period of X (pick your own X) years, rights revert to the artist.

The issue of the ability of a liquidator or trustee in bankruptcy to sell rights free from the obligation to pay the royalties originally contractually provided for has been a bone of contention since the Bankruptcy Act 1907 (and must have been so before in order to have been legislated for in that Act).

Pavane,

Is that what happened? If so, who promised the artists this huge income? Was it the person with whom they originally signed their contracts - before their original labels went bust and Bulmer bought the rights?

At least the tapes still exist and didn't end up in a skip somewhere. As long as that is the case there is always a chance of a fair settlement - though I don't think the hate campaign against Bulmer makes that any more likely. If I was Bulmer I'd probably just say 'Sod it' and bin the lot.

My understanding from Dick Gaughan, who started to remaster some of the Leader/Trailer tapes when he still had a relationship with DB, was that many of the tapes had deteriorated to such an extent, that remastering from a mint record was a better option.

However, the link that has been quoted leads to a post in which he takes care to factually record an issue on which he strenuously disagrees with a decision of Bulmer's - and on the information available I agree with Dick on this one. What he doesn't do is use the internet as a kangaroo court or resort to snide, cowardly personal attacks. He's more of a man than that.

Mr. Gaughan is also a man with an anti-Bulmer agenda though, and therein lies the rub.

I seem to recall him once saying that Bulmer's tapes constituted a "national treasure".

I remain unconvinced everyone should place quite that high a value on Bulmer's collection.

While Mr. Gaughan is a fine musician and by all accounts a decent enough lad, he done his share to contribute to the fracas and fuel the hyperbolic chamber on this one, mate.

How about another angle?

When we record a CD ourselves, we have to pay the MCPS who administer royalties in respect of the copyrights on the music, lyrics and arrangements.

We then place MPCS on the insert to certify that this has been done.
For small-scale recordings, they take our word on how many have been produced, and charge us accordingly at a scale rate.

The pressing companies for proper CDs make returns (to MCPS?) on how many copies they have pressed, so you can't avoid them knowing. It is possible to avoid this by burning CDR's and just not telling them, but this is defrauding the copyright holders.

Copyrights like this obviously CANNOT be avoided by bankrupcy, as the composer of a tune may have no contract with the recording company. Whoever issues the recording is liable for the royalties.

(Logically, therefore, I suppose that copyright on songs and tunes written by the performers, and also their arrangements, should remain with the artists, not with the recording company - is that right? Remembering that Nic Jones wrote some of his tunes,, and arranged almost all of them. Legal advice required here)

Therefore, if one finds CDR (or CD) on sale with (just one) copyright SONG or TUNE and no MCPS logo, there is a legal problem, which MCPS would probably want to investigate. And copyright is claimed on a surprising number of 'traditional' songs and tunes. (Wild Mountain Thyme, for one well known example).

If the CDR DOES have an MPCS logo, then the MCPS would presumably know how many were declared. And the royalties are paid at this point, NOT when the disk is retailed.

We know there are CDR's out there, does anyone have details of any such recordings which may contain copyright songs or tunes?
