Ownership in the 21st Century

I think that if an artist wants to remix a song then I think that they should first get the approval and rights from the original artist. If they don’t, then I think that it is basically stealing a song. The original artist put time and effort into creating the song in the first place. I think that remixes can be cool and sound really good but they should get the okay from the original artist or just create their own song. I think that sometimes there is the issue of the original artists not wanting to share their song because of the issue of profits and money. If artists are in it for the money then it can go as far as court and having to deal with those issues like in Katy Perry’s situation. In her situation The Beach Boys were going after her for her song “California Gurls” and it became a big deal with copyrights.
