Oklahoma Signs Truth In Music

04:01 AM Monday 2/9/09 | |

Oklahoma legislators have jumped on the bandwagon to keep imposter acts from performing in the state.

Jon “Bowzer” Bauman of Sha Na Na recently lobbied Oklahoma’s House Judiciary Committee to stop the “musical identity theft” of legendary acts.

Bauman claims that members of acts including The Drifters and The Platters have been impersonated around the States, despite the fact that many original members of the groups have applied for trademarks.

Oklahoma legislators are just the latest to join Bauman’s cause. More than half the states in the nation have signed his Truth in Music bill, which requires a group to include at least one member permitted to use a band’s original name or be fined thousands of dollars.

    Although I think this is ultimately the right thing to do, I doubt that it will improve the quality of the touring acts in question. All this means is that if you used to play bass for the Lovin' Spoonful, and you own the rights to the group name, you can legally tour with that name. Big effing deal. That still doesn't make it anything remotely resembling the original group.
