Because only two artists appear under a pseudonym, now accuses the Gema. She calls real name.
Hamburg - It goes without Gema: The club music pirates in the past year has released a compilation with 19 songs, which can not be represented by the artist development company - but have made their songs under a Creative Commons license. That means you can play the songs and sometimes even use it for commercial purposes, without having to pay for the Gema.
Now, the Gema suing Karen Millen Dress music pirates, the first hearing before the District Court of Frankfurt is on 9 Take place in July. It's about the song "Dragonfly" from the band Texas Radio Fish, which was published in December 2010, according to pirate music on ccMixter, a platform for music under Creative Commons license.
But because the two musicians in the band just under the pseudonyms Electronico Karen Millen and Elron XChile occur, can check the Karen Millen Dresses Gema claims to not know if they, the artists may not yet represent - or one of the world of the participating societies. Evidence that no compulsory license royalty-is on the CD is required of the manufacturer.
But the real name of Gema is why you see now before the court. "I assume that this requirement, the Court of Gema is cut around the ears," is music pirate boss Christian Hufgard quoted in a statement. The German Copyright Act explicitly look for the possibility of anonymous and pseudonymous publication.
In fact, artists can register at the Gema with a pseudonym. "Nevertheless we always need the real name," says GEMA spokesman Peter Hempel. "The risk of confusion is otherwise just too high." The pirates, however, see the music differently. "If a pseudonym can not be found in the database of Gema, then they may ask for any money," said Hufgard.
