Could Taylor Swift Re-Record All Her Old Songs? Should She? Legal Experts Weigh In
Taylor Swift attends the 2019 Time a hundred Gala at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center on April 23, 2019, in New York City. Taylor Swift has made a profession from talking about her thoughts and making her emotions crystal clean. That includes her extensively study Tumblr in advance this month decrying the acquisition of her former label, Big Machine, by way of Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings. Swift is known as it a “worst-case scenario,” that, in step with the singer, disadvantaged her of the chance to take manipulate of the masters to her first six albums.
But, in a foxy notion, fellow “Miss Independent” Kelly Clarkson tweeted over the weekend that Taylor should take lower back some real property in the skirmish by going again to “re-document all of the songs that U don’t need personal the masters on exactly how U did them but put modern artwork & some incentive so fans will now not buy the antique versions.” Clarkson promised she’d buy all the Taylor 2.0 songs to “show a point.”
It wouldn’t be the primary time an artist had attempted that tactic in warfare overmasters. Both Def Leppard and JoJo went down that street, with the English rockers re-recording their hits “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Hysteria,” and “Rock of Ages” in 2012 so one can battle “manipulate of our profession back” from the Universal Music Group, which singer Joe Elliott said on time became a negotiating tactic with their former label to obtain a new repayment agreement with extra favorable terms. Their redo of “Hysteria” has when you consider that sold 121,000 downloads, “Rock of Ages” has moved 207,000, and “Sugar” has offered 785,000 thus far, according to Nielsen Music. (The band didn’t permit their UMG catalog on digital at the time of the re-recordings. This is why the gaudy numbers for “Sugar,” however, their complete lower back catalog is now on streaming offerings, and the re-facts are not available.)
Pop singer-songwriter JoJo re-recorded her debut album and 2006’s The High Road in 2018 after an extended struggle together with her former label, the infamously opaque Blackground Records, which had no longer did the self-titled work to be had on streaming offerings; the albums have bought a mixed 2,000 copies and generated 23.2 million on-call for audio streams for his or her songs in the U.S., through July 11, in line with Nielsen Music. At one point, Prince threatened to re-file his whole again catalog, but settled for freeing 1999: The New Master, a seven-tune EP of remixes of the identify track, which hit No. 150 on the Billboard 2 hundred with total sales thus far of sixty-two,000 copies, in line with Nielsen Music (all figures accurate as of July 11, 2019).
Billboard reached out to music enterprise legal professionals (none of whom are affiliated with both side inside the Swift issue and had been speakme in fashionable criminal terms) to find out if the singer may want to, or have to, hit reset on her antique hits as a capability subsequent chess circulate in her dispute with Braun and her former Big Machine boss Scott Borchetta. Swift’s lawyer, Don Passman, declined to comment, and spokespeople for Big Machine and Ithaca Holdings had no longer returned requests for remark at press time.
“You grow to be a competitor of your record label in case you re-file and very own new master recordings from the same compositions,” Brian Caplan, an intellectual property attorney on the New York company Reitler Kailas & Rosenblatt LLC tells Billboard. “If you have the burden of a Taylor Swift, that’s one element, due to the fact you might be able to convince a part of the community to come back to you for older [songs]. But numerous human beings do not have the wherewithal to start a commercial enterprise and end up a competitor with their antique label… [however] you’ll cut into income streams from the [old] label, you will make extra money due to the fact you’ll own it, and gained’t have to give a chunk to the label that they may be entitled to beneath the antique agreement.”
Caplan says that widespread recording agreements have a re-recording limit that prohibits an artist from re-creating music that becomes formerly introduced to the document company (on occasion even ones that were not released for the duration of the contract’s duration) for a hard and fast period after the deal expires, a time period that normally runs 3 to 5 years. But he is really in conditions wherein customers have threatened to re-document songs or albums as a part of a negotiation tactic to get higher terms after they felt their unique royalty fee turned into too low.
