Maybe this was discussed before but I could not find it anywhere.
For the Olympic music submission there is a clause that:
"To clear the music rights, athletes will have to go through different steps, as follows:
(a) Clear the right to make their recording. This will involve identifying and individualizing the musical contents and their corresponding copyright owner(s) –namely, the (i) author/composer, the (ii) performer(s) and the (iii) producer of the recording– and getting permission from them."
The is not used on other ISU events music submission forms.
What if the artist or the owner of the piece does not like the music to be played with figure skating or demands thousands for the right?
I was under the impression that the major events are blanket covered by ASAP or CISAC licenses.
Since the skater(s) is not commercially benefiting, should he/she have right to use it (as long they purchased it not pirate downloaded it)?
Should not any affiliated fees with the royalties or permissions be paid by the even organizer?
