Still weird to think that he can’t play ATST in a Facebook video now without getting permission or paying royalties to someone else. 

Of course he can wtf are you talking about lol?

I mean he can, but he doesn't own the music anymore so someone could make him take it down. Just weird to think about.

Then why did we have instagram videos removed for using blink songs due to copyright claims?

Again i commend you to find out what hipgnosis is or does.

They essentially put their giaint songpool and its revenues on the stockmarket for their AND THE ARTISTS benefit.

Nobody will sue tom for promoting that material. But if somebody performs his songs e.g blink or tom himself and gains revenue, the money ends up at hipgnosis and they deal with the investing, take their cut and then pay out.

Its not even remotely what you guys are saying it is

The bold makes no sense at all.

They are a company that buys music and in the hopes that they profit off of it. They bought the rights to Tom's music. Why is this so hard to understand?

this actually makes it sounds riskier and even dumber for Tom.

haha yeah, what he said is totally wrong, but if it was right, it would be like playing UK stock market roulette with his songs.

It is not a partnership. Tom sold the rights to all his music. End of story.

I’m not really sure what to think of this. I mean, I’m not gonna lose any sleep over it, but it is interesting at the very least. Maybe Tom was desperate for a large amount of fast money for some big To The Stars project or something.

I don’t really care but this is just about the only interesting blink-related news right now. So does this mean he won’t make any more money off of blink unless he makes new music with them?

pretty sure he's made all the money he can off his back catalogue and this was a way to get a shit load of cash for it one last time.

i would imagine a decision like this could easily be made by weighing how much money he would get from the sale vs how much he had been making per year off owning 1/3 of it, especially in the last five years. maybe he really wasn't making shit off those songs anymore. and it's not like the band was ever going to do special re-releases anyway.

In a few years Tom might be broker than he was in 1992. I would be shocked if he invests any of this money wisely. We all know it's going to be poured into TTSA. I bet all those employees are throwing a party this weekend knowing they have jobs for the next few years.

I mean it somewhat makes sense

 

Even on my taxes my income generated from songwriting is classified as investment income.
