GC & Parliament Funkadelic are NOTORIOUSLY criminal. Venue owners know to remove everything backstage as they would steal everything from the dressing rooms inc the phones

Which makes me wonder how it was decided which songs they'd get the rights to. I'd think Atomic Dog would be way up there in terms of royalties unless the credits were split in more pieces than the others. If I were suing the godfather of the doggfather, I'd have either gone after the top earning songs or a percentage of the gross from his entire catalog. These lawyers couldn't possibly know more about suing their client than I do.

He may not own the full publishing rights to ATOMIC DOG.

Funk dat... Let me know when the mothership is on the auction block!

I don't know what joke to frame this in, so I'll just say it: Maggot Brain is a really good song
 
2013-01-07 04:40:27 PM
So, from the article - the lawyers "own" the copyright on those 4 songs until the earn enough revenue to cover the bill. After that, copyright reverts back to George Clinton.

Sounds like an opportunity for spiteful plaintiffs to run up revenue just $100 shy of covering the bill, then release it to the public domain, never earning another dollar off of it.

/There has to be something in place to prevent this, but it sounds possible from TFA
//Not that I'm the spiteful type that would even think up something like this...

Not likely, but you'll be able to see it anytime you want to in the next couple of years.

When you get close to the stage you can smell him, and not in a good way.
Love his music, from a distance.

NSCSO (not so cool story bro):  He lives close to here and was caught smoking crack in a conv. store parking lot a few years ago.  Also, some friends have been to his local studio and say it is very pungent and not in a good way.  They say it smells of BO, rotten food and pot.  He seems to be a person who makes questionable life choices.  Hedonism is not always good.

She never specified. Which one turns you from Thomas Dolbys keyboard player with a huge pink mohawk and leather mini skirts into a portly, middle aged lesbian who writes musicals?
