Jang Nara involved in copyright infringement dispute

September 11, 2008 at 9:49 am | Posted in Music | 4 Comments

Singer Jang Nara who very recently released her 6th album, Dream Of Asia is currently involved in a legal copyright infringement battle.

On the 11th The Korea Music Copyright Association received a message from an American singer’s management stating that the songs “If you ask me to” from her single and “Mirage (신기루)” from her 6th album were taken and distributed without proper permission.

The Korea Music Copyright Association was told that “the record company did not own the right to those compositions and that it’s distribution was only for private use. The American composer said that “It was used without permission” and that “the copyright infringement is clear.”

Also, if they continue to to sell those songs then they will have to face the consequences.

  1. uh oh~

  2. I do not quite understand I mean didn’t Shedrick Mitchell appear with Jang Nara on a resent visit to Korea, more than once.

    Or didn’t he own the copyright to the song after all as it seems from the above news report?
    Or maybe it the other person he wrote the song with that making the fuss?
    Either way it hard on Jang Nara to be caught in the middle after all the hard work she did on that album

  3. Shedrick Mitchell co-wrote the song with Jennifer Hamady, and only she owns the publishing on it. The song was a finalist in the 2007 American Idol songwriting contest for the coronation single (the song lost to “This Is My Now”).

  4. Hamady and Mitchell’s (excellent) demo of the song can be heard here: http://www.myspace.com/jenniferhamady/music/songs/if-you-ask-me-to-13816748
