The Doors and Neil Young cleared to be played on BBC radio

22003_609620649059624_1601057192_nThe Guardian is reporting that a corporation has settled the licensing disagreement that forced them to ban DJs from playing the artists’ music on the BBC network.

According to the article, earlier this month, the Guardian reported that the BBC had told DJs and program makers to stop using music by four acts – the Doors, Young, Journey and Bonnie Raitt – because all four had withdrawn from the Mechanical Copyright Protection Society (MCPS), meaning the BBC could not pay them for plays under its collective agreement with MCPS and therefore could not play their music without breaching copyright.

The ban extended to covers of those artists’s songs and tracks that sampled them.

Neil: These days it\'s all about closure of this and that for me. I have too many things to finish. How can I move on until I clean that slate? My film Human Highway [made in 1982] is one of those things. It should be available to the public. Dean Stockwell and Russell Tamblyn, my old friends from Topanga Canyon, and Dennis Hopper, a good old friend, were in this movie with me, and we wrote the dialogue as we went along. It is the dorkiest damn movie ever, and it walks a very fine line right on the edge of being too dorky. Some may say it falls over that line. The film was never put to rest to my satisfaction. When I finish something, I want it to be right, or as right as it can be.
