My father wrote and copyrighted a song in the 80's? The music was used in a popular Mexican Soap Opera that has since gone worldwide. He has the sheet music to prove his case. We need a lawyer that would not charge upfront costs, but which one would be best for the situation? It's so confusing.
Thank you!Hello again, Yes, my Father is still alive. He is the only author of the song. It was registered with the Copyright office in the U.S.A. He did not sign any paperwork . He left a demo that was clearly labeled with copyright info at a record label in Florida , it was left to show his work as a songwriter. There were no transfers of anything or deals of any kind. It was more of a leave it and we will get back to you. They never asked for his permission and we caught it by accident when we lived near Chicago,IL and I heard by accident on a soap that my Mother had been watching. It is now apparently on DVD and shown on YOUTube. We found a snippet on YOUTube. The company when they were contacted always gave the run around. We now live in Florida. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you again! Question: Where should the lawyer be based? Florida is where the we live now and where the music was dropped at the record company. Does it matter? Thank you.
