Ilayaraja complains of copyright violation

Music composer Ilayaraja has lodged a complaint with the Chennai Police that a private firm had commercially exploited his music without his knowledge.

In a petition to Commissioner of Police T. Rajendran, Mr. Ilayaraja said he had scored music for more than 7,000 songs for which he held the copyright. The Echo Recording Company, with which producers of various films had entered into agreements, had not paid him royalty. They had sold the music rights to other companies illegally.
