Thread Name: Carter Family copyrights?
Subject: RE: Carter Family copyrights?
Hadn't thought of it that way and yes, I misunderstood you. What you describe makes lots of sdense: if three different people are claiming the same song then each one is claiming their own arrangement & you need not pay anybody. Contrariwise, if one song has three authors (as was the case for us) then we paid-- one of them was Von Tilzer and I had no idea he had survived till 1935! I would love to check with some of the authors we paid $$ to and see if they actually GOT their money. . .
