Subject: RE: Copyright warning - bloggers!
Anne, a point in your first posting was well made - while may be some benefit in making some of your music available for free, YOU SHOULD BE IN CONTROL of that process! That's exactly what copyright is about: not that nobody's allowed to copy anything, but that the making of copies is something for which only you have the power to give permission.
Anyway, I'm glad it's been resolved - I saw your earlier posting in another forum when you hadn't yet got any recognition that there was a problem.
Somebody mentioned PRS - why should that be nasty? PRS exists to protect such rights, and PRS are involved in the production of recorded material as well as live performance, though as this is a mechanical copyright issue, the closely related MCPS is more relevant in this case.
