How a Legal Fight Over Ray Charles' Song Rights Might Impact the Music Industry

How a Legal Fight Over Ray Charles' Song Rights Might Impact the Music Industry | Philanthropy - Legacy From The Heart | Scoop.it
In a battle over rights to Ray Charles' famous songs, the charitable foundation that was bequeathed the singer's money and assets is suddenly in a tough spot, in danger of losing the substantial revenues that "I Got a Woman," "A Fool for You," "Mary Ann" and other hits generate each year.
That's because Charles' children, who largely were cut out of the will, are attempting to terminate a copyright grant on the songs to Warner/Chappell Music. If the songs reverted to the children, then the Ray Charles Foundation no longer would get royalty checks.
In late March, facing this potential loss, the foundation sued the children, seeking a declaration that the termination notices are invalid. To make this argument, the estate argued that Charles' songs were made under employment to a record label and music publisher. As such, these songs are allegedly works made for hire, "authored" by the predecessor to Warner/Chappell, and the children have no termination rights.
But if that's really true, shouldn't it be Warner/Chappell suing Charles' children?
In late September, a judge arrived at the same conclusion but left the door slightly ajar to a lawsuit if the songs were not made for hire.
So, rather incredibly, the Ray Charles Foundation switched positions this month and now is arguing that the songs were not, in fact, made for hire. The litigation could set up the next big court decision on termination rights, a suddenly important part of copyright law that is causing the music industry fits now that artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Tom Petty have sent their own notices.
