One thought on “Old School Music Piracy

    Perhaps someone could clear the air of confusion I have about how the music industry views the use of their product on older TV/Movie productions made by Hollywood. In the old days the studios werent so cautious in using music etc without the authors permission.

    Is there a statute of limitations on copyright infringement? Don't these studios have to keep on record agreements made in the past. Could'nt artists sue studios who havent kept proper records?

    Just a thought… Remeber the theme to SHAFT?
