Copyright Is Very Serious Don't Get Caught


What is copyright?

It is the exclusive legal rights, given to an originator or an assignee to print, publish, perform, film or record literary, artistic, or musical material and to authorize others to do the same.

Dancehall and Reggae music artists, why waste resources recording on other people's riddims/beats?

It is a dangerous practice to us other artists property without their permission. Some dancehall artists are using some hip hop and RnB beats without the permission of the producer or owner's consent.

One of the hottest dancehall song for the month of June 2017, was Ishawna's 'Equal Rights'. Even thou it charted in Jamaica and other Caribbean islands, she could not sell it on any digital platform because she is not the owner of the beat on which it was recorded. Ed Sheeran has the rights to the beat.

The fact is Jamaicans don't buy music. So why record music which cannot pass the airport?. Be original and let others follow like back in the 1980s and 1990s.

Most of these young upcoming artists don't know their musical history. Why do you want to be like the rap artists? Don't you know that Rap Music was birth from Dancehall Music?.

There are a lot of talented artists in Jamaica who can be very creative and produce original songs/beats. They also need good guidance, proper management and producers to push their art to the next level.

Legal rights
by: Bonekurs

This is a great insight for upcoming artists like me to understand ethics of the music industry.

I am not sure if this is the right platform to bring this up, but I have listened to some of the beats that you have on this website and would like to use it.

I am an upcoming underground artist from Botswana, Africa. I would like to know the right channels to follow in order to get legal rights to use it.

I can be contacted at pako.mere@gmail.com or facebook @https://www.facebook.com/bonekurs

kindly waiting to hear from you.
