Post-Erika song causes controversy

In light of allegations that businessman, Khimo Astaphan, has breached copyright laws in a video posted on social media, attorney at law and song writer/singer and member of Look-Us Band, Ronald Charles, is appealing to Dominicans to refrain from using copyrighted material without proper permission.

Charles’ remarks come amidst a controversy over a song, ‘Dominica Overcome’, written by him and performed by Jerd Dorsette of Look-Us Band, that was used by Astaphan, CEO of Platinum Security, in a video depicting his company’s rescue mission of evacuees of Petite Savanne.

Charles claimed that no prior permission was sought nor was credit given to the Look-Us Band in the video and to make matters worse, the song has not been officially released on CD and a video is still in production.

“We are encouraging persons… if somebody has the video up or doing anything in that reproduction as long as the song has not been assigned to you or you have not been given permission it is not fair to go ahead and do it,” he said on Q95 FM radio on Thursday.

The video with the song, which was uploaded to YouTube, showed a number of missions organized by Platinum Security to Petite Savanne. It became a huge hit as many saw it depicting the struggles that Tropical Storm Erika brought to the people of Dominica and the determination to rise above the adversity. It was eventually removed from YouTube.

Charles said although it may have been done for a good cause “at the end of the day there are no credits given to the band, nothing is being given back.”

“So we are saying to people to refrain for it. But in terms of moving forward we definitely would tell anybody who has intentions to use the song please call me so that I can look into what you want to do, we can discuss it,” he said.

He said it is public knowledge that proceeds of the song will to go to children who were affected by the storm and the band allowed radio stations to play it to bring comfort to those who need it.

“Ultimately, when all the dust is settled within a month or two and then you would say to Ronald Charles, where is the contribution that you say you would give the children…? And I cannot account, what you think people going to say?” Charles noted.

But Astaphan said that Charles had sent the song to him and it was his understanding that it could be used and despite pleading with Charles, he insisted that the video be pulled down.

“I have to say sorry that I had to pull down the original video because the song writer and myself could not have come to an amicable decision as it relates to the usage of the song,” he said in the video uploaded to YouTube. “I was sadly mistaken and we were asked to remove the song as there were some rights issue.”

He stated that in their many discussions about the song he pleaded with Charles to reconsider adding that “I don’t know what he wants” but “it is bad taste that we have lost lives and we are suffering as a nation and we are looking at how we can benefit from the use of songs.”

He was quick, however, to point out that everyone has a legal right and ownership over their material and it was not his intention to create any misunderstanding, “however I honestly feel like a time like this, he could overlook it.”

The businessman said he contacted Michelle Henderson to create a song for the video and “within seconds” she agreed.

Astaphan noted that it “unfortunate” that the song had to be pulled down and “now is not the time to see how you can benefit man, it’s just how you can give.”

But Charles pointed out that he and Astaphan had a very long conversation over WhatsApp over three to four days, “trying to bring to his understanding that at the end of the day if we can meet and talk about what we have put out there and in any event it would be advisable that he pull it down until we meet, talk, discuss and move forward.”

He said Astaphan was “a bit hesitant to do so” but they finally met.

“He was asked to make a contribution and Mr. Astaphan’s contribution was maybe to ridicule the whole situation,” Charles said.

Charles admitted, however, that if the video had given some kind of credit to the band, “maybe I could look at that, that is why I wanted to meet with him, that I what I wanted to do…”

    Hey Ronald/Jerd great song once again. I believe a true anthem in the recovery and rebuilding efforts; however, I believe this song should be available free to all and your band could setup a relief fund at a local bank to raise some money for those in need. The result would be everyone will get to hear this great and inspiring song, good PR for your band, and maybe even more money for those in need.

    the same way Kihmo could contact Michelle to create a song, he could contact Roland before making the video. Let’s not be bios here people.

    “Charles said although it may have been done for a good cause “at the end of the day there are no credits given to the band, nothing is being given back”<<<<<<<<Charles admitted, however, that if the video had given some kind of credit to the band, “maybe I could look at that, that is why I wanted to meet with him, that I what I wanted to do…”—–News Article

    It is in times like this that we should take heed of the principle of God's word, which says: "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places"

    Two men claimed to do something good for the sake of victims of a destructive storm, which happened to us, but unfortunately it produced a futile reaction. But why ?

    It is because of the "control" which man allows on the ground of his mind–the seed of the "spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places

    • September 11, 2015

      We hear it from Mr. Charles, whose purpose was a work of which he expected fame and fortune–take a look at his own words above.

      Mr Charlse’ grievance is that: At the end of the day there is nothing coming back, in that there are no credits given to him and his band

      Mr. Charles, Sir, perhaps you do not know that the work of Love wants no name, no fame, no credits–and so the good work on your side is without Love, hence without God; and that work is still vanity or even futility

      Why futility and vanity? It is that you tried to use the weakness of your people to build your own strength; for if you had produced the song for the sake of contributing to reduce their weakness, you would be glad to give everything; even the part of Mr. Astaphan would not trouble you–you produced the song, he added a video to it–everyone knows who did what; all you needed to do was wait to hear from God–but you had to spoil it; that is how we destroy our own benefit.

        I always find it so hypocritical of you to always be supposedly proclaiming the word of God but still openly displaying how bias you really are.
        Also in the article, since you love quoting it seems; “He said it is public knowledge that proceeds of the song will to go to children who were affected by the storm and the band allowed radio stations to play it to bring comfort to those who need it.”
        If the material is copyrighted there are protocols which should be followed. That should be simple enough to understand without talking about vanity, futility and that hogwash about waiting to hear from God- but he had to spoil it… rubbish.

    We talking about intellectual property. Agreed the author has his rights. Why I’m I not hearing about the composer though? Who composed the song? Who produced the song. This is a major achievement and the composer, producer and musicians should be applauded. Who are they?

    You Tube videos when monetized gets paid by the amount of hits the videos get. So at the end of the day any money that would be paid would finally have to go to the ‘ Mi nou’ Look Us Here We Are band. Is de permission part that is the issue . It is not fair to trivialise the artist works and this is not fair use (copyright terminology). If you read a previous DNO article you will recall the writer talking about how many takes the singer had to make and the emotion involved in the process. Recording music is sensitive, time consuming , harduos work. So you cyan just come and take de man works. As Bob Marley say,” me no care who de guy is, when it come to my right …”

    It’s amazing this discussion. First and foremost, every Dominican Red/blue/yellow felt that song was theirs n never in the history of Dominica that I know of did we go thru so much pain. This song added to live real footage of the rescue mission that gave credit to so many people was removed. I know many people who watched this video over n over again for some sort of peace but shallow minds didn’t see this- they saw $$$$$$$. The people who risk their lives and boats did it out of their goodness of their heart. The people who are making noise did you help? But those that help allu crucify them. If Kihmo didn’t do this video how then would the world see? Isn’t that what’s it about? I must see to believe. Ronald has the right to protect the song but not once did the singer say anything not once. Ronald you bro , need to look at the bigger picture and sometimes we need to let go. I listened to both of you guys argument and I think of what Kihmo is saying is true he meant no harm…

Is a shame Ronald want to make a stink about that. Make a song when people are not emotionally needy,let it be a hit then come talk until then go away. Kimho was actually helping people while all u fellas seeking fame.

      @ Rabbit, I do not know you but I can bet my life you not living in Dominica. If you were living here or even visiting here on a regular basis, you would have heard of The Look Us Band. FYI, the 2014 election hit song “That same Ronald Charles” was also written by them. Your stupid comment just confirmed to all that you have abandoned Dominica and only come here once every five years, when you get a free ticket to come vote. Do you even remember how to get to your village?

    Dominicans are too narrow minded! I understand Khimo’s argument and I also understand Ronald. The man’s song is his property and as good as Khimo’s intention may have been, he should have discussed it with Ronald and let Ron decide. As a business man would Khimo be happy for one of his employees to just go take his car or boat and go rescue people? Why go and shoot video with the man’s property without giving credit to the man on your video? It reminds me of those preachers that going to poor parts of Africa and shoot video of people staving and next thing using the video to raise money. It’s wrong and Khimo just need to admit that he erred.

    September 10, 2015

    WOW! Dominicans REALLY have no understanding or sensitivity to law and order?! I APPLAUD Ron Charles, not only for this wonderful song, but because he did not get angry or upset. He did not take to social media or airwaves, he reached out directly to Astaphan and worked it out. He even said at the end of the interview today that he is still friends with AStaphan, and taking legal action was far far from his mind. HE did not intend to make this a big issue, but he had plans for his song and he has a right to control it.

    Astaphan may not have meant harm, but once contacted should understand that if it isn’t HIS property he should defer to the property owner. No hard feelings needed! Nothing to make a controversy about!

    Beautiful song that deeply touches anyone who hears it. Nicely done Mr. Charles and the band that performed it. Mr. Astaphans, God bless your and your employees for the assistance rendered to those in need. They will never forget.

    It is my view that the song is quite fitting and should not have been taken down. Dominica through it all, we shall rise again.

      September 10, 2015

      All I can say is…kihmo delivered his offering in this special time of need and everyone is very grateful cause u did it the way u could, now don’t steal another’s. Let Mr. Charles deliver his own offerering,,,now unless we individually understand the reason Ericka damaged us….theirs no rising…We were hit by God not man…seek my people, seek!

  15. That is so sad’; a very nice song and video to go with it made the meaning to the words in greater context and it was done tastefully. Shows the talent Dominica and how disaster can bring all together. I feel bad for the artist who sings the song. We say one thing and we turn around and completely do something very different.

    That beautiful song will always bring to mind this controversy instead of the togetherness, it made us feel sad yet hopeful; it now makes the words in the song seems a bit hypocritical to me and that is sad, The video added so much to the song, If they were to add a different video to that song, they will be unable to use the rescue scenes that were so compelling. Shame.

    One can only guess and come to their own conclusion why maybe the video was not allowed. I could draw my own and so could many others and what I am thinking seems as a no brainer and very sad but I will keep it to myself for now. But it is very clear for all to figure out.

        Khimo didnt promote the video as Khimo and friends, but as Platinum Security, Those guys are not Platinum employees……..people need not be sentimental but view events in reality. These guys did a great job but the video also promotes Platinum. Simple!!!!!!! the song suits the video perfectly but a simple discussion and agreement would have avoided all this……….its just more publicity for the individuals involved and less for the people who really need our attention…….the affected……the homeless in shelters…..those who lost all their belongings……..the family of those who lost their lives.
        Lets stay focused please.

    this controversy takes away from the hard work Kihmo, his crew and all the other fishermen, police officers and the good hearted citizens of Dominica did and are doing for the people who suffered tremendous loss as a result of Ericka. It’s a shame that persons all over the world have to listen to us over the air ways bringing down each other, at a time when we are asking for international help…. It saddens me the hate and anger in persons voice over the radio this morning over a song that was used I a video to show the world the tragedy we went through and how we stood by and help it other, most people at their own cost, risking their own lives. I am happy that this video is back up! This video was greatly done and has touched my heart along with many others…. Kihmo please do another video involving other villages around the island….. Good job, your reward may not be on earth, but God sees all. Good job to every Domincan here and abroad who are working hard to rebuild our…

    It is clear that both Astaphans and Charles are looking for publicity. However, we have to respect property rights. Its business; Mr. Clarles made it clear that proceeds for the song would go to the victims. But it is clear that people are taking pics and videos of their every move to post on facebook for publicity. Everything we do to help others does not have to be out in the public to show that we did something. Let us help with genuine hearts. God bless our beautiful Dominica.

    I had some time to listen to both Ronald Charles and Kimo Astaphan, who both confirmed that they are friends. I think Ronald should allow Kimo to get the video back on YouTube as it will be financially beneficial to the recording and as Kimo suggested since he was not making personal financial benefit from the video the original offer of 50 songs be paid. That sounds reasonable. However, I think if Ronald were to give an idea of the cost of the production of the song, that would calm many fears.

U are trying to make things look more farce than it is. Also why is is now that u are coming with claims of usage of the songs when it was on the Internet for all to share way before the video was out?? I think u have seen how many hits the video got an show popular it was getting …! FYI u don’t get paid for YOUTUBE videos eh my padner? This was not done for money. It was done to bring awareness to those of us who have suffered our family are still missing. Some are buried in shallow graves. And we were very happy to see the footage of what happen.

    The video translated into free publicity for the song where people would be more tempted to purchase/download when it’s released.

    Garcon Ronald is a joker. I saw the original video and platinum gave credit to the writer and singer. If Ronald wanted to add the band then it could have easily been added. Ronald himself said that he was talking extensively over whatsapp with Kihmo, did he tell him that. Also he said that Kihmo offered a ridiculous amount did Ronald counter like Kihmo said in Matt dis morning ? The video got over 6.000 hits in less than 3 days. If Mr was smart he would have worked out a deal to promote his song instead he kill his own song. Marjee! 2015 is for real deals. De man wasn’t even making money on the video

    i thought you were different . I thought you would have looked at the broader picture and see how this would make the song popular. but you realize that Platinum Security has gain a little recognition.

    Just what do you expect back Mr. Charles are you one of those patriot Dominicans who saw a song as a way of benefiting from a disaster. The shame has just begun.

    I am disgusted by Ronald Charles. Was the song made to help Dominica or to give Ronald Charles fame? Although I agree there are some copyright issues here, we have not been in normal times since Erika. He could have easily let this ride since Astaphan did a great service, rescuing babies and old people. That was his contribution.

    For my part, I not going to listen to that song again. I will listen to Alex Bruno song, no matter how terrible it is. lol

      That song of Alex Bruno is what they use to torture prisoners in Guantanamo Bay.

    Dominicans must learn to respect the intellectual property rights of artistes. One cannot use the artists material without their permssion and compound it by not giving the artist the credit, no matter the circumstances Erika or no Erika. There is no excuse for this blatant breach of the rights of the artist.

    Ronald did you ask the people who was devastated during Erika to record them for your video. You people are just using the tragedy of Erika to get rich.

      It wasn’t Ronald Charles who did the video. Read the article properly and understand that it was Mr. Astaphans who did the video with Mr. Charles’ song.
