Signed but not registered

Post by elser » Tue Sep 15, 2020 2:34 pm

I have some tracks that were signed but never registered by the library. The library has since gone out of business leaving no trace. I can't find any contact information on Linkdin, Facebook, none of their contact information works. Anyone know if I have the legal right to register my tracks and use them even though they are signed to a non-entity?

This is an interesting question for sure. Maybe something for the music lawyer when she appears back on TAXI TV or the Road Rally?

Oh dear. I think the first thing you need to check is that the LIbrary's catalogue hasn't been sold on - it's an asset and one that may be generating income so there's often some value in another company taking it on.

If you are willing to PM me the name of the company I would like to check I don't have any myself as I have 2 unreleased albums I'm waiting on , someone should also let them know over at MLR for their graveyard database.
