    Default copyright help

    sup guys so here the situation. two of my singers did some vocal for a remix i did for the beatport chriss vogt contest ()
    she asked me after i posted it on beatport if she would have copy right to the remix since she used her own lyrics. she is the first singer in the track.

    any help would be nice guys thanks

    if the lyrics are her own original work then she should own copyright over them and their use afaik - not to the whole remix i guess.

    You'd have to read the fine print of the contest rules but I'm guessing since it's a remix of an existing artists track that they or beatport would own the rights to any submissions.

    did you make any payment to them or form a contract? If not its such a sticky legal area as the agreement is your worr against theres. Id just talk to them and say look guys we did this session on colaberation of ideas I think we should sign a contract to split and profits n equal 3 ways.

    Or you could say that you making them a drink was there payment for studio time and you own the copyright to there work.

    much simpler with photography as afaik the photographer always owns the copyright. still need to get a model release tho from any models actually in the photos. so maybe similar - ish - or not

    If you summited the remix i'm afraid you've lost all rights over it (that's the way beatport contests work), even if you do win or not.
