    Raaja's Composing Fee was Rs. 5,000 for many years, then increased slowly

    Ilayaraaja's copyright lawsuit is known to everyone in South Indian cine world. The Madras High court victory in 2015 was highly publicized and many producers thanked Raaja for the initiative. Watch his brief press meet with Producer Thanu and his explanation on how close friends cheated him. It's very surprising that SPB and Charan embarked on a global tour without talking to their lawyers or sponsors about music royalty. In any SPB concert, his fans always expect him to sing majority of Raaja's compositions. SPB50 organizers should have negotiated payment to IPRS. His global tour started in 2016 with Toronto and Moscow. The latest USA tour started only in March. They had plenty of time to resolve this issue. Unfortunately another close friend has cheated Raaja. The loss is for Indian music lovers who cannot hear SPB singing Raaja's songs in a live setup. It appears that Charan is adamant not to pay any IPRS payment for Raaja's songs but he will pay for Rahman's songs. SPB is now leaning heavily on MSV and KVM's songs since there is no royalty issues for these composers. MSV's family is living a mediocre life and Raaja did a concert in 2016 to collect money for MSV's family. Rajini and Raaja handed over the cheque to MSV's family. SPB and Charan should pay some royalty to MSV for singing his compositions.

    உனக்கென்ன மேலே நின்றாய் ஓ நந்தலாலா
    உனதாணை பாடுகின்றேன் நான் ரொம்ப நாளா
    உனக்கென்ன மேலே நின்றாய் ஒ நந்தலாலா
    உனதாணை பாடுகின்றேன் நான் ரொம்ப நாளா

    It's more of a prestige issue now since SPB & co put it out in FB and I don't think there will be any solution to this until SPB go back to India(mid-April) and Kamal or some middleman try to bridge the gap between them

    With all due respects to SPB, the organizers of his shows (yes that includes charan) are not doing any social service and are making quite a business with these songs. There is nothing wrong in the notice hence. If this was a charity show and raja sent a notice, we have an option of feeling bad or upset.
    Not in this case, for sure.

    A Music Composer who holds world record for number of albums is indeed not rich.....

    People should pause for a moment and look at list of Top 100 Musicians (http://www.therichest.com/top-lists/...est-musicians/) in the world. You won't find the name of World record holder for composing the maximum number of albums (above 1000) and songs in this list. Many people know this fact and his amazing music collection had shattered world records several decades ago. I have written about this issue in this group since Indian film/ music industry has a poor track record of maintaining sales numbers and providing copyright ownership to all musicians, lyricists, singers and artists.

    One small example - I have calculated that "Ithu Oru Pon Malai Pozhuthil" song would have shattered many Platinum records worldwide, if all sales records from thousands of illegal cassette shops in India, Malaysia, Gulf, Singapore, UK, Sri Lanka besides radio broadcasting in AIR and Ilangai Vanoli were properly accounted. Legal sales of cassettes, CDs and LP Records within Tamil Nadu don't provide the full picture. There are hundreds of such platinum hits from Ilayaraaja. The present generation of youngsters cannot fathom the enormity of Raaja's accomplishments.

    Director Velu Prabhakaran nicely explains how Raaja never got his full worth for his enormous accomplishments.

    Copyright issue: Sun TV barred from using Sony Music Recordings (More fallout from Raaja's notice to SPB)

    Chennai, April 21: Today, the Madras High Court has passed a landmark order where in SUN TV who were found using a number of Sony Music songs without prior approvals, are restrained from using Sony Music copyrighted work with immediate effect. This judgement was passed by The Honorable Justice Mr.K Kalyanasundaram after the global music giant challenged the leading Chennai based television network. This important order validates the rights that have been given to Creators and Owners and will go a long way to ensure a fair economic balance between the creative community and the larger broadcast and internet organisations.

    Approvals from music rights owners are mandatory before using (synchronization) songs with new visuals. The music could be existing songs, versions or underlying works. TV Broadcasters, Advertisers, Film producers and Internet companies who use existing music will now need to seek prior permission from copyright owners before communicating to the public including broadcasters.

    This decision will help the music and film industry as authors, composers and labels shall be entitled to claim their rightful share.

    Kannan - Thank You for posting this. Excellent article... I could not find the first and fourth series in the site. Can you please the link for 1st and 4th series?

    I am continuing to study Western music composers and producers who have produced major hits since 1950s. Almost all legendary composers, except for very few giants, have produced around 15-20 major hits (Songs or Albums) during their peak career. Each one of these hits were produced over a period of 6-8 months - each song/ tune would take several months to be fully in production mode with lyrics and score. One such legendary music producer Rick Rubin (Def Jam label) has his own music studio in his Malibu, California mansion. Rubin has had 18 Grammy nominations and eight wins. He takes several weeks or months to come up with a new tune. Our Raaja can churn out original tunes in minutes and the entire music album is ready in 1-2 days. This is mind boggling to think....

    Raaja just took a poem and a song was produced. Raaja mesmerized people a day ago at a function - watch the 20 mins video.
