Dancehall and reggae music copyright and Illegal download issues - Most recording artiste and producers in Jamaica will tell you that they cannot make any money from their music on the Island.

We here at dancehallreggaeworld.com often wonder if there are any laws which govern the music which are produced in Jamaica.

Here are some of the issues that the music industry has to grapple with..

* The same day that a song is released you can get it online to be download free of cost.

* Dancehall and Reggae riddims are used without producers knowledge or approval, for the cutting of dub-plates or even by other artiste to record their own songs.

Here are a few unanswered questions that we are still to get answers for.

1. Is there a body that looks after dancehall and reggae music.

2. Are there laws in Jamaica to protect the music which are produced in Jamaica.

3. Can the minister of Technology do something about music being uploaded and download to website in Jamaica without the producers and artiste approval.

There are a few sites which the artiste and producers send new releases for previews.

In the United States the copyright issue is very serious.

If an artiste uses another artiste material without his/her consent, they could be sued and this sometimes for Millions of dollars.
