SPB receives legal notice from Ilaiyaraja

S.P.Balasubrahmanyam, Ilaiyaraaja

This is certainly a shocker. Musical maestro Ilaiyaraja sends legal notice to legendary singer SP Balasubramanyam. The latter was in US giving concert along with Chitra, Charan and others.

SP Balu took to Facebook today and revealed the news that he cannot sing Ilaiyaraja's songs in the concert as he received legal notice using his works. He further said that “Couple of days back, an attorney representing Shri.Iliaya Raja, sent legal notices to me, Smt.Chithra, Charan, organisers of the concerts in different cities and the managements of all the venues, which says that we are not supposed to perform compositions of Shri.Iliayaraja without his permission, if so, it is breaking the copyright law and have to pay huge financial penalities and face legal action. Let me say, I am ignorant of these legalities.”

SP Balu is hopeful that his concert won't get disturbed because of this, as he sang numerous songs in other composers songs as well.
