Do you guys still have the rights to your songs?

Jun 15

With the greatest hits coming out in a couple weeks from your old label, I was wondering if you still own the rights to your songs. I know you guys owed one last album with Interscope/Geffen but it seems wierd to have it released after you guys left the label. And with Dave gone it seems like you can't re-release any old songs on a greatest hits or anything without the label. So with Dave and your major label gone, do you guys still have any song rights?

    I think it would be sad if they didn't have the rights to songs that they worked on with passion and effort. I sure hope that is not the case and that they still have the rights to them.

    I think they might with the label and all 'cause Time for Annihilation is on Eleven Seven but if they can release the songs on a live album they might still have the rights. Plus they're friends with Motley Crue and they have the rights to all their songs. And I think Dave only gets paid for when their songs are re-released.

    Interscope/Geffen probably owns the rights to their previous songs, don't know about b-sides.

    Yup. they're Geffen's. and B-sides recorded with Geffen's money. Live CDs are exempt. because the song isn't the same live as it is on the album so it isn't the same song. No old B-sides can be released anymore.

    Except for "Just Go", since thats gonna be on the greatest hits album. I guess this will be the first and only greatest hits album we get from Papa Roach...

    That's just what I was gonna put down.
    To Be Loved is Geffin's interpretation of a Greatest Hits. They're still releasing it even after PR got off their label and went onto Eleven Seven. All purchases made on To Be Loved will go to Geffin and Geffin alone, no profit towards the guys from PR. Time for Annihilation coming out August 31 is Papa Roach's actual album where they will receive profit.
    From what I've been hearing Coby's been trying to make it clear to not buy To Be Loved and make sure to buy Time for Annihilation, which basically validates what I said... :x

    I think it fucking sucks if they dont, seeing as the guys wrote all of the fucking songs. Why is it that so many record labels are fucking idiots!?
