The thread on Sting not sharing royalties reminded me that I've been meaning to post this.

Duanes daughter should be getting royalties for this if she isn't already....

Several of their commercials use this song and IMO it couldn't sound more like Dimples unless they had Duane singing

I don't know about Duane/John Lee Hooker - Dimples, but this opens another can of worms.

Are there specific royalties for PERFORMANCES of songs?

I'm thinking about the TV show, "the Wonder Years". They used the Joe Cocker version of "With a Little Help From My Friends". I always wondered if Lennon/McCartney, Cocker or even both received payment for use of the song.

Anybody know?

Who ever is the song writer will get the royalties....

So Lennon/McCartney get the royalties from that. Joe paid a royalty when he recorded the tune. For every copy made a certain % goes directly to the songwriter and then you make your money on top of that %

Never heard anyone play it but the Brothers and really thought it was written by Duane. i lead a sheltered life.

Actually Google says Dimples" was written by Leigh, Carolyn/coleman whoever that is. So is that John Lee I hear playing in the commercial?

Wonder Years played some great music!

Those would be the publishers who stole the rights...Yes that is the JLH version

sort of like Steve Aliamo is credited for Mellisa or how Saul Z stole all of CCR song rights

A musical composition obtains protection in copyright law immediate to its reduction to tangible form a score on paper or a taping; but it is not protected from infringed use unless registered with the copyright authority; for instance, the Copyright Office in the United States, administered by the Library of Congress.

No person or entity, other than the copyright owner, can use or employ the music for gain without obtaining a license from the composer/songwriter.

Inherently, as copyright, it confers on its owner, a distinctive "bundle" of five exclusive rights:

(a) to make copies of the songs through print or recordings
(b) to distribute them to the public for profit
(c) to the "public performance right"; live or through a recording
(d) to create a derivative work to include elements of the original music; and
(e) to "display" it (not very relevant in context).

Where the score and the lyric of a composition are contributions of different persons, each of them is an equal owner of such rights.

These exclusivities have led to the evolution of distinct commercial terminology used in the music industry.

They take four forms:

(1) royalties from "print rights"
(2) mechanical royalties from the recording of composed music on CDs and tape
(3) performance royalties from the performance of the compositions/songs on stage or television through artists and bands, and
(4) synch (for synchronization) royalties from using or adapting the musical score in the movies, television advertisements, etc. and
With the advent of the internet, an additional set of royalties has come into play: the digital rights from simulcasting, webcasting, streaming, downloading, and online "on-demand service".

In the following the terms "composer" and "songwriter" (either lyric or score) are synonymous.

Yes. Viagra has done a bunch of commercials featuring famous songs by classic blues guys- they could use covers or less famous versions and save money, but it must be worthwhile for them.

I think it costs more to use a specific recording than to license a song, especially if that recording is famous, but there are a lot of particulars I know nothing about. This Conan O'Brien Tonight Show bit is based on one of those- the joke is that he was flagrantly wasting NBC's money by buying a very expensive car and playing the original master recording of "Satisfaction" by the Stones, and that it was going to cost NBC a ton to play the song on the air and put it on the internet. It didn't cost anything like $1.5 million, but NBC really didn't put the clip on the internet because they didn't want to pay whatever that was going to cost.
