Who owns the rights of the music for the Mexican National Anthem?
It was writen by Jaime Nunó Roca, but he moved to the USA shortly after traitor Santa Ana left Mexico, and according to wikipedia: “Nuno, Henneman and Hill did register the music with the company BMI (BMI Work #568879), with the Edward B. Marks Music Company as the listed publisher of the anthem.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Himno_Nacional_Mexicano
Now my question is, if a USA company holds the rights for it, can i buy it? who really owns it?
Chances are that it’s the mexican equivalent of public domain, but if not, contact BMI or the publisher and ask.
Of course you probably can’t “buy” it – no country is going to sell their national anthem for anything you or I could afford – but you could get the rights to use it.
I suspect, though, that it’s in the public domain, if they have that legal concept there.
where on th bmi site do can you report someone leaking illegal music?
There’s a “contact us” link at the bottom of the page.
Can Radio stations download music from Limewire without paying a fee to BMI or to the owners of the song?
they download they play the music without paying fees
Is that legal and what can be down to stop them?
Broadcast stations would never obtain their music this way. However, I imagine some Internet radio stations might do this occasionally, although it is illegal.
But regardless of how they acquire their library, stations pay licensing fees to ASCAP, BMI and/or SESAC (in the U.S.) and those organizations pay royalties to the artists.
How do I become a re-seller of digital music?
I’m looking to set up my own digital music store? Does anyone know how to get Sony / BMI /Warner to sell me tracks on a wholesale basis and allow me to sell them to customers?
If you have the capital and an excellent presentation of what you’d like to do, I am sure that if you contacted these companies, they would have the best answers for you. Make a potfolio of ideas that you would like to have your website looking like and the different ways it will function. The best website for downloading music is one that is user-friendly. The easier it is for your customer to get what they want, the more return customers you will have. By the way, these companies will not sell you these songs on a wholesale basis. These songs are meant to generate the companies and the bands royalties. If they sell you a song it is for your own personal use. If you begin selling that song, it is without their permission, against copyright and therefore, very much illegal. You could move to Canada, we seem to get away with downloading free music, because if they searched our computers, it would be against our privacy rights. If they suspect you of having child pornography, that’s a whole different story that makes me glad that pedofilia does not run in my blood. But that is besides the point, I hope this helps you out.
What are some historical controversies in the music industry?
One example the professor gave was the Dixie Chicks vs. Bush Comments but I can’t think of any others and I’m not interested in that. Besides everyone is going to do that one.
Is there some controversy concerning ASCAP/BMI/SESAC? That’s bound to be a hotspot.
I’m taking a music class and we need to “Ponder this question” to understand the legal and publicity difficulties facing popular musicians. I don’t know of any renown controversies. Do you? Fill me in on a few and I’ll research them.
Thanks for your ideas!
How about reaching backward in time to the “Payola” scandal?
As you might guess, people only buy records they’ve heard. Before the internet, that meant radio. DJs were accused–and IIRC, found guilty–of accepting bribes or kickbacks for playing certain records and refusing or forgetting to play others.
