Music copyright is a law that recognizes music as intellectual property and allows the owners of music to register them as their property. Music copyright gives the artist particular rights of reproduction , performing and sale of the music. Music copyright is divided into sound recording copyright and copyright of the composition itself. Music copyright is important because it makes sure that artists get from the music they produce. The copyright requires every individual to pay for recording, selling and distributing the music. Therefore, it ensures musicians earn their rightful profits by preventing music piracy. Music copyright is important to eliminate legal battles among musicians over who owns a particular song. However, listeners who need to pay for all the music they want to listen to.

Essay of the Day: How Copyright Makes Books and Music Disappear and the Public Domain Resurrects Them

Essay of the Day: How Copyright Makes Books and Music Disappear and the Public Domain Resurrects Them | copyright infringement | Scoop.it

“A random sample of new books for sale on Amazon.com shows more books for sale from the 1880’s than the 1980’s. Why? This paper presents new data on how copyright seems to make works disappear. First, a random sample of 2300 new books for sale on Amazon.com is analyzed along with a random sample of 2000 songs available on new DVD’s. Copyright status correlates highly with absence from the Amazon shelf. Together with publishing business models, copyright law seems to stifle distribution and access. Second, the availability on YouTube of songs that reached number one on the U.S., French, and Brazilian pop charts from 1930-60 is analyzed in terms of the identity of the uploader, type of upload, number of views, date of upload, and monetization status. An analysis of the data demonstrates that the DMCA safe harbor system as applied to YouTube helps maintain some level of access to old songs by allowing those possessing copies (primarily infringers) to communicate relatively costlessly with copyright owners to satisfy the market of potential listeners.”

 $22,500 for 30 songs, that's like a zillion times Pandora's royalty rates.
