How you gonna jack my thread, which is still in the Hiphop news section?


And for the people that replied thus far...'Ghostwriting' is actuality is defined as not getting public credit.

95% of ghostwritten material in the music business, the original owner retains copyright authorship for legal purposes, and as a protection to get paid for the writing work...In addition, to get paid by a label legally, the writer moust have the verse registered through a publishing company (that's if the writer is even registered through a publisher). While there are some rare cases, the artist is generally cutting out any chance of them getting a larger cash check if they DON'T retain copyright/publishing on the verse. Because of this fact, while it may be covered up by the press, lawyers, and NOT be in the album notes...'ghostwriting' is very researchable through the copyright office.

I explain this all in my thread about this, where I got the info, and so on. MOST of the research I did for this ISN'T in album credit notes...all of it is from LOC (Library of Congress) copyright searches. That's the problem when someone takes a thread...he needs to also take the explanation of the research as well.

Here's the original link:


ALSO...for those interested...check out my 'Definitive Charting/Success/Awards' thread too, here's the link:

The only embarrasing thing about having a ghost writer is when the songs they wrote for you are your only hit singles/songs.
