Jim Carroll Origins: Folk music stolen for movies (12) RE: Origins: Folk music stolen for movies 26 May 20

"then we need to accept that anyone can use it."
Absolutely Steve - the copyrighting of 'arrangements' needs to be nipped in the bud too - all folk songs are "arrangements" because of the folk process
I've always toyed with the idea of a fund being set up that can be donated to by singers recording traditional songs commercially and ploughed into the research and preservation of these songs - not compulsary - maybe, but a show of gratitude to those who gave us our songs
Organisation like the National Sound Archive ans EFDSS are always (justifiably) pleading poverty when they are asked to do something
