Hollywood Studios Sued for Recycling Film Soundtracks Too Much

Hollywood Studios Sued for Recycling Film Soundtracks Too Much | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

New contracts need to be introduced every time a work of art is used.  A guitar sample and a drum sample from the same person can be registered independently and gain their own royalties and when each is used, each needs a contract.  People tend to let this go, and in result want their fair share.  That is why contracts are made.  But, in defense, waiting this long is also their fault.  I have been a victim of time, lawsuit, and it ends up being a short than longer window for chances at recovery than one thinks.

Hollywood reporter is an accredited source. I would consider it a  major source in the audio industry.  They cover mainstream Film, art, and music articles, with honest content, that reaches a large audience.
