: : do you know if there's copyright issues with using beethoven music in my film? cos my
: friend says it's copyright free, but doesn't the orchestra playing it have copyright on it?
: The publishing, I believe, is public domain at this point.
: However, the orchestra playing it gets a fee for the Master (aka that particular recording
: you're using).
The person who produced the actual recording will own the wrights to it. Part ofr the holy trilogy, lyrical copyright, musical copyright and recording copyright.
For instance if you wrote a song, both music and lyrics, you own that. But if i record and produce that song i own the rights to tha recording and get money for that. Of course if you paid me to record it, then you would own the rights to it.
so whoever recorded it probably has rights to it, so it aint free.
