Ilaiyaraaja is an Indian film composer, singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, orchestrator, conductor-arranger and lyricist who works in the Indian Film Industry , predominantly in Tamil. Widely regarded as one of the greatest Indian music composers, he is credited for introducing western musical sensibilities in the Indian musical mainstream.

Earlier, over a year ago, Legendary singer SPB took to his official page on social networking site Facebook to announce that he and two other singers, K.S. Chitra and S.P. Charan, had been served a legal notice by Ilaiyaraaja’s attorney, asking them not to perform his compositions. The notice stated that if they continued to perform his compositions, they would be breaking the copyright law and would have to pay huge financial penalties while also facing legal action.

“Only I hold the right to all my songs. The money I would now get by selling the rights would be shared with the producer of the film, singers, and lyricists,” he said then.

Since the composer said he holds the absolute copyright to his works, he further warned that action would be taken against television channels and FM radio stations if they play his works without permission.

Now after a year, the legendary composer has released a 2 minute video explaining about the matter in detail. He warns the singers who do programs performing his songs without his permission.

“Music artists, this is a new announcement. If you wish to sing my songs without prior intimation, legal action will be taken against you. This also includes people who play instruments, and you all have to realise this is wrong. From now onwards, the South Indian Music Artists Association will levy royalty fee for my songs. 

Please understand I’m not stopping you from singing. You are paying royalty for the money you earn and not for my song. If you’re singing my songs for free, then you won’t have to pay money. Its a simple thing understand it clearly. However, if you are earning money by singing my songs, what is wrong in me asking a share of it?” said Ilayaraja in the video.
