According to The Wall Street Journal, UMG has upped its efforts to protect its investments in artists during a time when recording and distributing music has become significantly easier.
Sources have told the publication that the label has revised some of its contracts to extend the amount of time in which an artist is prohibited from re-recording their work.
Susan Genco, board member of artists’ rights group Music Artists Coalition and co-president of the Azoff Company told the publication:
“What Taylor did is a game changer, not just for her fans, but for other artists. She is inspiring artists to re-record their songs and control their music. Taylor is leading by example: Showing fans and artists that it’s possible to take control of their future.”
The new report comes just days after the ‘All Too Well’ singer shared her latest re-recorded album: ‘Red (Taylor’s Version).’ The album is her second re-recorded album and follows ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ from April of this year.
As of reporting, all of the specifics are not known.
