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and program makers to stop using music by four acts – the Doors, Young, Journey and Bonnie Raitt – because all four had withdrawn from the Mechanical Copyright Protection Society (MCPS), meaning the BBC could not pay them for plays under its collective agreement with MCPS and therefore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.

““Fort McMurray is a wasteland,” Young said. “The fuel’s all over, the fumes everywhere – you can smell it when you get to town. The closest place to Fort McMurray that is doing the tar sands work is 25 or 30 miles out of town and you can taste it when you get to Fort McMurray,” he said. “People are sick. People are dying of cancer because of this. All the First Nations people up there are threatened by this.””
