What are my rights when someone uses a performance in which I was a significant participant on a commercial CD? I don't recall signing anything that assigned my rights as a performer, nor was I asked permission for its use nor even notified of its release. I have yet to ascertain whether I'm credited on the CD at all. I know YANAL, but surely this sort of thing has come up for someone before. How did you handle it?
