Trinh Cong Son’s music not for free anymore

by admin | post a comment

VietNamNet Bridge – Those who use Trinh Cong Son’s music will have to pay royalty to the Vietnam Center for Protecting Music Copyright (VCPMC).

Late composer Trinh Cong Son.

Late composer Trinh Cong Son’s younger sister, Trinh Vinh Trinh, on behalf of her family, has signed a contract with the VCPMC. Accordingly, the family authorizes the center to manage the copyright of Trinh’s songs.

Under this contract, the center will be the exclusive representative of late composer Trinh Cong Son’s family in managing the copyright and collecting royalties from the use of Trinh’s works in all fields (performance, recording, ringtone, hotels and restaurants..) throughout Vietnam and in the countries that the VCPMC signs bilateral cooperation agreements.

The VCPMC has performed the functions as of September 2, 2011.

The center has signed bilateral cooperation agreements with partners in 134 countries in the world. Therefore, the copyright of Trinh Cong Son’s music will be protected in these countries.

Trinh Cong Son (February 28, 1939 – April 1, 2001) was a Vietnamese composer, musician, painter and songwriter. He, along with Pham Duy and Van Cao, is widely considered one of the three most salient figures of modern Vietnamese music.  

Trinh Cong Son wrote over 500 songs, and, during the 1960s and 1970s, Joan Baez dubbed him the “Bob Dylan of Vietnam” for his moving antiwar songs. Hundreds of thousands of people gathered at his funeral in HCM City, for a spontaneous ad hoc funeral concert, making such a spectacle the largest in Vietnamese history. His music remains very popular among both old and young Vietnamese.
