    I got my vinyl early last week, and I did nothing to earn it since my wife bought it as a bday gift. I feel so guilty.

    look, I don't want to give ANY sort of false hope. But with album re-recordings, this interview, saying she has more surprises...... I dunnoooooo she loves hinting at things

    I do not exist.

    My first Taylor album was 1984 and until folklore I’ve never loved a whole release... but I’d definitely check out these re-recorded re-releases.

    I don't want to know what it says about me that this exchange has somehow planted that Bowling For Soup song "1985" in my head

    soups up

    Ok lawyers - how does the acquisition not include "publishing rights" or whatever? How is she "legally" able to rerecord the same songs and not be sued?

    The article @bradsonemanband linked is great, and the short version is you cannot actually steal your own creations, she signed away the recordings but not the songs themselves, which she wrote

    it's the same reason there were two completely legal guns n roses for awhile there (idk if this is still a thing, it's just an example)

    Yep there's a difference between master rights and publishing rights. The master rights are for the recordings themselves, and the publishing is for the underlying composition. Typically when you sign a recording contract, the label will control the rights to the master recordings, while the publishing rights are retained by the songwriters and administered by a publishing house.

    It's like if I signed a deal with Universal Music and on my album I had a cover of Cardigan. Universal would own the master recording, but Taylor Swift and Aaron Dessner would have the publishing rights.

    So, that being said, what can the owners of her masters do with the music aside from selling the songs themselves? They can exploit the actual recorded tracks in any audio way they want, but they can't use the songs for commercials, right?

    from what I remember, both the owner of the masters and the publisher have to issue licenses for that (master and sync, respectively)

    school was a decade ago tho so take that with a grain of salt, my brain has both quarantine worms and cobwebs on it these days
