GV Prakash aggrieved that audio firms fail to pay royalty to music composers

Music composer GV Prakash Kumar has tweeted accusation that some audio firms steal the royalty from music composers and lyricists. 

Due to online growth, audio firms are struggling for income.  On the other side, music composers are striving to come up amidst stiff competition.  The clash between the two has come to light through comments in internet. 

In his message in Twitter, music composer GV Prakash Kumar has accused that some audio firms receive signature from music composers and lyricists in forged documents, and then, those companies fail to give the royalty.  Also, GV Prakash has requested co-artistes to cooperate for solution to the problem. 

‘Audio firms force the producers to get an agreement signed from music composers and lyricists. They do this by promising a royalty.  When the agreement is not signed, their cheque is put on stop payment.  The agreements are fake, and we are not receiving due payment.  Growing artistes would be the worst hit.’ said GV Prakash.  

Majority of music composers have opined in favor of GV Prakash.  Elderly lyricists as Na Muthukumar, Yugabharathi, and Thamarai are contemplating a solution.  Also, they are contemplating action with regard to the issue. 

Lyricist Madhan Karky has conveyed his thanks to GV Prakash in Twitter page.  Also, he added that there would sure be a good solution to the problem.  Also, Venkat Prabhu has opined in favor of music composers. 

Also, young music composer D Imman has conveyed his support. 

Lyricist Vairamuthu has conveyed that when songs are used in fields other than cinema, due royalty to music composers and lyricists should be given.  Audio firms including Sony, Gemini have not commented on the issue.
