"@taylorswift13 Just think, u have to go in and re-record all the songs that U does not own, but you have to provide new arts and incentives to keep fans from buying older versions. "She wrote on Twitter.
Grammy-awarded singers said they would buy Swift's reissue music to "prove points."
Clarkson's advice may seem like a hopeful idea for some, but some artists have re-released the music in a situation similar to the past. The 80s rock band Def Leppard refused to let the original album Universal Music use the original record for anything but real products after the band members felt immutable about the digital value of the hit song. Shortly afterwards, the band began to re-reveal replicas of the past music, ignoring the label and initiating a similar discussion of artists and music ownership.
However, the same favorable terms as Def Leppard will not apply to Swift's contract. The appendix to the band's initial agreement provided approval for how to use and sell music.
Clarkson joins many celebrities with the support of Swift and recently released a label with the rights to the entire catalog through the "reputation" of 2017 with her recent acquisition of Scooter Braun and Big Machine Records. I got it. Swift called Braun "a rhetorical bully". I was shocked to learn about her transfer of work after the transaction was already completed.
But others did not understand much. Justin Bieber went on to defend Braun. Swift criticized her "passing the line" in her public reaction. Big Machine's own Scott Borchetta was fired from Swift, implying that she could never purchase her rights to master recordings.
