Piano World Member's Recording Compilation Project


Volume 1


The idea originated from this thread .

The Piano World Member's Recording Compilation Project (PW-MRCP) aims to create a compilation of recordings by Piano World members. The deliverable of this project will be a set of professionally pressed CD's containing recordings submitted by Piano World members.

(Please see Project Plan Outline for an overview of the Project.)

Legal/Copyright Issues



This thread is setup to address the legal and copyright issues related to the Project.

There are two issues that need to be addressed:
  1. A "Release Form" that members who submit recordings need to sign to allow their recordings to be included in the Compilation CD's. I can provide a draft that I used for a similar project in the past. But I can also use some help.[/b] If a lawyer-member can help take a look at it (pro-bono) to ensure fairness to members and adequate protection for Piano World, so much the better. Please contact me if you can help. I am thinking that, bascially, the "Release Form" should be simple, should acknowledge that the member who made the submission retain all rights to the material he/she submitted, and states that the member allows the submitted material to be used royalty-free, once, for the Project.
  2. Copyright concerns -- while most classical published more than 75 years ago are in the public domain, more modern works may still be protected by copyrights and may not be suitable for inclusion in the Compilation. This thread is setup so that PW members can query and discuss such copyright issues.



I can point to http://www.ascap.com/ as a resource. But I know little else beyond that. People who know more please chime in.

Note: The "Release Form" will need to contain your real name and signature because it is a piece of legal document. However, that does not mean your real name will be made public if you submit a recording. Unless you want your real name to appear in the CD or the booklet, I see no reason why we cannot simply list your Piano World screen-name and not disclose your real name.
