liquid grooves / music copyright infringement
SABC used my music for their program Special Assignment for about 4 years without paying me mechanical rights.
I own the rights in perpetuity as I wrote and recorded it.
I also have 97 broadcast sheets to prove it.
SABC were under the impression that SARRAL (who gets an annual fee in exchange for clearing the rights regarding music broadcast on SABC) were, in fact, authorizing the usage as the title appeared on their website.
Co-incidently, according to standard tariffs, I am due R97 000.00 either from SARRAL or SABC as this is blatant copyright theft.
