BBE should reissue this thread.
i will never understand how people that seem to like the same music can fight over it, all this exclusivity s*it is really beyond me. Lets hope you can fix this.. money getting spent on lawyers will not help the original artist, and the peanuts that you earn with one track of a 20+ tracks comp in these times will maybe pay the petrol to the court.
me as a cosument, i don't want to read this (on a message board). totally bad look for everybody involved.
BBE should reissue this thread. or it could be an insert when the record comes out!
best thread in years
the world has seen this behavior for centuries now.
This thread is I will say that seems a little off to know someone is planning on comping a track, sell them the record & then turn around & beat them to the punch on an exclusive license so they then can't actually use it though. Maybe BBE genuinely thought they had bought the rights & it was all good, or maybe they were just hoping to sneak it through. Interesting thread, but not really a lot of good looks being shown.
"on another note, people to know that when says he is "helping" people in afircan or paying "good" to my agents in africa to help find shit that is full of shit! trust me, i got the whole back story on ya ass!!!"
by the way, i specifically asked for african disco and boogie records but you kept playing me wack ass african funk records. you didn't even know what a disco record sounded like until kept having to go thru more stuff....it was to the point where i was going to give up.
you need to find a new hobby!!

Lastly, I want to go over something that seems to be getting lost. It's about the artists[/b] . This celebrity digger shit needs to stop
fuck your agent...
Frank, you look seriously foolish when you take it beyond the foothold of "These dudes are in the wrong." The legal threats are totally retarded, as no lawyer is going to trial over one song on a comp that will top out at 3000 copies.
My advice: If BBE is willing to give you $500 for the track, take it and redistribute. This shit ain't ever going to recoup, and ultimately it's about making money for you, the musicians, the publishers, and the songwriters. Maybe the song gets picked up for a German TV show, maybe it just buys everyone a pair of shoes. You win either way. Holding back for the sake of exclusive content is just leaving cash on the table. In this business, there isn't that much, so take what you can, when you can.

it further displays your imperialistic, controlling nature.
