Royalties/copyrights on live performances

Recommended Posts


is my band entitled to play any cover song we'd like in concert? Here in Norway, we don't have to ask anyone. The composer gets his royalities off our performance anyway.

Is that an international law?

Or do these things vary from country to country?

from what i know the performer of the songs live keeps the money

but if its recorded and sold then royalties are to paid to the original writer

so Axl doesn't need to pay the original gnr for playing the old songs live but if he chooses to release a live cd/dvd or reuse an old song on CD then he must pay royalties
