If royalty is for Music director, what about royalty to Raga creatorDear Members,
There is a tussle between Music director Ilayaraja and Playback singer SP Balasubramaniyam. The Music director asks for royalty from the playback singers for singing his compositions.
My question is - If a Playback singer is insisted to pay royalty to the music director for his tune and music, what about the royalty to the great Raga composers from the music directors who uses their Ragas? What about the royalty to the lyrics writer from the music director?
Has Ilayaraja ever paid royalty to Vairamuthu, vali and other lyrics writers, whenever Ilayaraja conducted a music concert?
What is your good view and comment?
