on Thursday night described the Extra Magazine, how the Danish singer Chio Dyrlund, who goes by the stage name CH10, was furious at TV2 and Sony, because she had not been informed that her song 'Karma is a Bitch' had been released in 'X Factor'-finalisten Mathilde Caffeys name in the wake of Saturday's finale, where Mathilde Caffey song just the song on national television.
Koda, which ensures musicians ' rights in Denmark, explained, however, that for the Chio Dyrlund was not something to come after the purely legal.
- It is legal to do cover songs, so legally there is no case here. But legal or not, so it's both a good idea and good style to inform and crediting those who have made the music, said Eva Hein, who is the communication director in Koda, to Ekstra Bladet.
The announcement is DJBFA, which is the largest association of songwriters and composers in Denmark, however, does not agree.
It has got their bestyrelsesforkvinde, Anna Lidell, to go to the keys on Facebook and comment on the matter.
'the Problem is just that the production company behind the show does not seem to have ensured that the songwriter was in on the plan. They have not explained properly what they wanted. That in itself is bad and utjekket, and something we must do away with in the music industry. Great players have great responsibility! If they are not checked, who would be it?! In addition, it would be great if the writer was credited, like the to the DR's sing', she writes.

Anna Lidell also think, however, that there is a legal problem in connection with the TV2 and Sony's use of CH10's song, because that is changed in the. the
'But there is probably also a legal issue. The original song lasts 3:45 min., while the 'X Factor' is 40 sec. shorter. There are eight lines of text and thus the larger sequences of the song, there simply is cut out. Apparently, without the written consent of the author. It must be basic not. It is, however, an individual assessment from song to song when doing a cover, but the assessment here is that the song is changed – especially when larger pieces of text has been removed', she writes, and continues:
'If there has been a musikfaglig person behind this decision, they would without a doubt know, that it was not in order'.

Opposite Ekstra Bladet explains Anna Lidell his criticism:
- There are two aspects. It is ethical and legal. Legally you are not allowed to go in and change the song radically. They have been allowed to make a cover, but they have deleted a lot of text. They have done the 40 seconds shorter. This is what I think is the problem. I think it's changed, " she says, and continues:
And then there is an ethical problem. TV2 and Sony has a big responsibility. They must have time to call the author and ask if it is okay. It is hugely utjekket, it has not been done, and that there are not any artists accredited.

For Extra Magazine tells Eva Hein, who is the communication director in Koda, performing musicians ' rights, that the case could potentially have a legal aftermath.
'When we from koda's hand writing, that legally has no case, then it is out from the premise that it is a cover version of the song, which has given rise to frustration. But if the number has changed and reworked in a way that makes it not a cover version, and this is what this conflict is about, yes, it is something that sidse end will have to be decided by a court of justice', she writes in an email, and continues:
'It is hard to say something unique about where the border between the cover (which is allowed) and machining (which requires permission) yesterday, but given that the release of covermusik is very, very widespread and litigation in the field of incredibly rare, I would think, there must be significant changes'.

the Extra Leaf has been in contact with Sony, who do not want to comment on the statements from DJBFA at the present time. They report, however, that at present they are investigating the matter.
For Ekstra Bladet says Chio Dyrlund, who is behind the CH10, that she has been made aware that her song 'Karma is a Bitch' may not have been treated in a correct way.
- From what I can understand, so is it legal to make a cover of a song, as long as there has not been amended in the text and made much of in the song, she says and continues:
- But they have changed in the order of the text and removed some of the verses. I have been told by many attorneys and musikfolk now that it's Sony and TV2 have done with my song, therefore not legal. Me and my team are still in dialogue with different people. I don't know just what I should believe in yet, she says.
- We have been in dialogue with the artist prior to 'the X Factor'. They knew well, that the number would be played in the final. But we take on our mantle, we were not enough aware of to guarantee us that they had understood that the song was also released subsequently, " she says, and continues:
- When this is said, we have not done anything legally wrong. However, it does not that we are bored of it at the purely human level. For there is a person at the other end, which is sad, and not find it here is awesome, and it will, of course, we like to dialogue about, and therefore we have also reached out to both the artist and her record label, she says.
According to Karina Fenn, therefore, they are not pale, regretting the course.
- We have tried to do what we can from a human point of view, and therefore we would also like to reach out and say that we very much regret. We should have made sure that we were 100 percent sure that they had the understanding that the song was also released subsequently. It was wrong of us to assume that they knew it, " she says, and stresses:
- But it's not something with the song to be withdrawn, or that it will have consequences on the way in, we have not done anything illegal.Show more Close
- We are just so sorry that the musicians, which should have seen the use of their songs in the ’X Factor’ as a big pat on the back, instead have got a bad experience, says Dorthe Thirstrup, kanalchef for TV2.
- Chio Dyrlund and Thomas Holm, the Danish originalkunstnere behind two of the year's cover-singles, had, of course, have been informed about exactly how their music would be included in the final, and we regret that it has not happened. All the rules are followed, and the use of the numbers is, of course, reported to KODA and NBC, but the actual communication with the artists has simply not been good enough, which we regret, and, of course, trying to rectify in the future, sounds the on.Show more Close
