Young music scorer of South Indian film industry, GV Prakash who claimed against few audio companies for stealing the royalties from lyricists, has got a huge support from Tamil industry.
Recently GV Prakash tweeted, “Royalty is the basic right of a creator and it stays with him or her! Trying to steal that from them is cheap.” Prakash had also seek the support from senior composers and lyricists for the cause.
He got immense response for the issue raised by him, many junior composers in the industry have supported Prakash for the cause. Music composers take their stand by saying that the agreement is the one that deprives them by earning royalty for the music composed, whereas they are the sole owners of the song which they have composed.
Apart from this, Executives from audio industry say, already they are paying more for the composers to get the content, by fighting against piracy the business has reached pathetic condition. In this situation it is not possible to pay additional royalty for the composers.
GV Prakash, also focused on the new composers and lyricists, by saying, “Leave the established composers and lyricists, what will be the condition of the composers who are new to industry.” Senior lyricists like, Na Muthukumar, Thamarai, Yugabharathi and writer's union are discussing the issue with concerned authorities.

Some audio companies are stealing the royalties from the composers,lyricists and making them sign fake agreements ! Not fair ! Some action should be taken by the music union ! And the elder music directors should join together and protest against malpractices ! Royalty is the basic right of a creator and it stays with him or her ! Trying to steal that from them is cheap ! Not done !

I have signed the documents keepin in mind the rapport and love I share with the makers. I feel that considering the effort we put into the compositions, we ought to get the share from the royalties.
