does anybody get paid "publishing" on mixtapes (where copyright infringement runs rampant)?
very informative. thank you.
Bumping until the Music Business forum comes back lol.
~Keeping you in tune with the music business~
As a rule, record labels will claim ownership in the sound recording, it's a standard clause in an artist's record deal to give that up.who owns the sound recording copyright? the person that pays for the studio time (label), or the person that actually hits "record" on the D.A.W. (engineer)???
Absent that, it's the person or people who had substantial involvement in the creation of the sound recording - usually that means the recording artists, though it can encompass anyone who had creative input - including producer or engineer - making it a joint authorship situation. Yeah, things can get tricky if things aren't figured out beforehand and there's a dispute.
Since Youtube isn't doing the actual syncing or creating the content on its site, it doesn't have to pay for licenses, just like a television station wouldn't pay for the sync licenses for songs used in commercials (the ad company that makes them does that). It does pay public performance royalties to songwriters though.does that mean that youtube is payin' artists for the music videos that it plays of them?
If someone is selling mixtapes, which are considered 'phonorecords', then they would need to pay out mechanical licenses for the musical compositions on them. I'd imagine there's not much of that going on, probably through the songwriter's own choice.does anybody get paid "publishing" on mixtapes (where copyright infringement runs rampant)?
No, sorry if I was a little unclear. "Publishing" only refers to the practice of exploiting (in the good sense) a musical composition copyright. When people talk about giving up their publishing, or half their publishing, they mean letting someone else exploit their copyright in exchange for that percentage of the income it generates. It doesn't involve giving up copyright, the intellectual property itself. A publishing deal could involve a transfer or assignment of part or all of a copyright, but not necessarily.giving up your "publishing" is the same thing as giving up your "copyright"...right?
