Well, as you may understand from the title of this blog post, Taylor Swift is the copyright. What do I mean? The queen of pop with her multi platinum 1989 copyrighted every song and it’s today still impossible to find a clean version of any song on YouTube or any other illegal website (example? Wildest Dreams lyrics version – It’s actually a cover).
Taylor and her legal team are so strict with whatever she “creates” that she unveiled in an interview with Jimmy Fallon before the 1989 came out “I am so scared the album will leak that I am the only one who owns it at the moment, my label or family don’t have it, I hate this pressure and it’s making me obsessed”.
You can’t have Taylor Swift if you don’t … pay.
Taylor Swift has also decided to remove her discography off Spotify because it’s technically free, as explained on this article published on Rolling Stone. The artist later decide to upload her discography on Apple Music only after she wrote a letter to Apple where she claimed artists should get paid during the 3-month trial as previously stated in the company’s policy. Eventually Apple changed its terms and conditions and so did Taylor.
Well, if you know your name is Taylor Swift you know you’re allowed to change the world and make everyone pay for whatever you want to do. And we will pay, it’s Taylor Swift, the queen of copyright.
PS. Taylor recently copyrighted her image, that means you cannot take photographs during her gig (if you’re a photographer) – no photograph pit exists at her gigs anymore.
