GUEST,JB Origins: A quick question: royalties (7) Origins: A quick question to the experts out ther 05 Jul 10

Just wanted to know if the following two songs are old traditionals or if royalties would have to be paid on these.

The holy ground (Fine gir you are)

The little drummer (recorded by Planxty)

I always thought these were traditionals, but I have now been informed by the Gema in Germany (equivalent of MCPS in the UK)that they are registered as having been written by someone and are thus subject to royalties.

I have absolutely no problems paying royalties to artists or crediting the writer of the song as long as the information is correct.

Would really appreciate any inf on this.
