Stupidbodhranplayerwhodoesn'tknowanybetter Copyrights and traditional tunes (14) RE: Copyrights and traditional tunes 13 Jan 00


Be careful! People get in trouble for the stupidest things. I've heard stories of organizations like ASCAP (whom Utah Phillips describes as the scourge of the music industry) actually going so far as to harass sessions, ceilis and even go to festivals to make sure nobody's playing the wrong tunes or songs around the campfire. I know of a fiddle instuctor who's been asked for a list of tunes she teaches! It's ridiculous! All the best,

Rich
