Felt happy and really appreciate the Maestro Ilayaraja sending legal notices to SPB and starting a new discussion and possibly a new era in protecting the intellectual rights in India’s Music industry. May be this is the right time we create a legal branch to protect the intellectual rights, collect royalties from the big daises and corporates whenever a creation is reproduced in any form, then use that money for the welfare of the Music industry while duly paying back a Lion’s share to the original creators.
I Support what Ilayaraja did.
Imagine a song writer, a musician and a whole movie crew working hard on creating a master piece song… and that song is then used by thousands of other big guys in the live shows etc generating huge revenues.. Such money never goes back to the original creators while the intermediate groups become billionairs leeching on someone else’s creation.
Don’t support this heinous unregulated intellectual robbery of rights in the Indian music industry. If you don’t buy piracy, if you don’t encourage plagiarism, then you shouldn’t be buying tickets to all those live shows making an intermediate group filthy rich when many of the actual creators are languishing in poverty. I wish the Industry wakes up at least now to start thinking in this direction.
I support what Ilayaraja did. What do you say?
thanks for reading.
