|RAP artists pay a licence fee? NO!|
I get your playlist licencing, but why should I let somebody take my brand new
work that I've created, and MESS ABOUT WITH IT without *my* permission!
There's a bit of a problem here. But I would have thought EMI / Sony-BMG et al
would be only too happy to put their works into a play-list pool - after all, if
they don't, they won't get airtime and sales. But don't FORCE artists -
especially small ones - into a pool because chances are they won't see a penny
of the pool income.
And why should they have to surrender the integrity of their work (which may
*damage* their work) as a result of a compulsory pool? If someone brings out a
bad-taste pastiche of my work a week after I release it, it's quite possible for
the derivative work to ruin the commercial value of the original ...
