For this year’s legal panel we will be dissecting two topical subjects:
(a) Re-records. Many producer/artists seem to be re-recording their old hits (sometimes in conjunction with a publisher), so they then can exploit themselves. How do you avoid breaching the terms of the original record contract? In which ways might a re-record infringe the copyright or performers’ rights in the original recording, particularly if it’s a near identical recreation.
(b) Covers There been a recent trend towards crossover success for dance producers covering or interpreting existing compositions. What legal right does an artist have to make and release a cover version? What constitutes a “faithful” cover version and what doesn’t? What rights do publishers have to insist that a new composition is a cover when it’s not?
