How the russian label ScentAir Records cheat us since 2016 and don´t pay us money for Youtube and downloads since 6 years.

 

Klaus von Annern : Hello Stefan, actual you have published some albums with reworked and new Transponder songs. What can you tell me about that?

Stefan : Transponder was a while not active, but now I found time to re-work some songs and I have done some songs new with Leaether Strip. All this you can find now at the albums “Bad Blue Boys”,
It´s Too Late Now”, “Stomp Hard”, “Back To The 80s”, “The Remixes” and “Taste The Flames”.

Klaus von Annern : You have published 2016 via ScentAir Records the Album “Hammer And Anvil”. With this label you have since years problems. Please describe the problems.

Stefan : Since 6 years I got no money for the download-releases but what is the bigger problem is that this label mean that they have the right in my music at Youtube. When I upload my own music I got the info from Youtube that there is a copyright problem and that the owner of the rights of my music is ScentAir Records and not I.

Klaus von Annern : Haven´t you contact this label because of this problem?

Stefan : I have contacted Vladimir Romanov of ScentAir Records 1.000 times. He have always promised that he or the person who does the uploads at Youtube for him will change this that ScentAir is not – what the label definitely isn´t – the copyright owner of my music.

Klaus von Annern : And what happened?

Stefan : In a few songs he have done what he have promised, but in many songs it is the same situation since 6 years! Only lies and cheating from this russian man and nothing more.

Klaus von Annern : So ScentAir Records don´t pay you money for the downloads – they cheat you since 6 years that you can´t make money with your own music on Youtube too?

Stefan : This is the exact situation. When people listen to my music or watch my Videoclips on Youtube, ScentAir Records gets again money for the watching and since 6 years they pay nothing to me.

Klaus von Annern : Do you have a proof for that?

Stefan : Yes, sure. Here the screenshots of the uploads from the 24th and 25th February 2022. You see that ScentAir Records is the “owner” of the copyright in my music when yu click on the “proof” link.

Klaus von Annern : But how can they be the “owner” of the copyright when you have published this songs as “Rhesus Factor” in 2015 at the album “Mann der Arbeit” and some songs also years before, for example 2011 in the album “Body Music (Back In Mind”?

Stefan : That is definitely not possible. I have published many of the songs 5 years before they issued the album “Hammer And Anvil” in 2016. They can´t have any rights in it. They published only a compilation of old songs on CD, nothing more.

Klaus von Annern :
An other question is how can they be the “owner” of rights in the cover-versions Transponder have done? In this case they steal the bands and the labels of the bands like Depeche Mode, Front 242, Leaether Strip, Tragic Error, The 2 Live Crew and Hubert Kah. THis bands or they labels have to get the money for your cover-versions not this russian thiefs!

Stefan : Exactely : this bands or their label and definitly NOT ScentAir records.

Klaus von Annern : Can you tell me some more about the songs, you released in 2011-2015 and which ScentAir Records have published as a compilation in 2016?

Stefan : Well, in this times I have used the name “Rhesus Factor”, because I have done all as a one-man project. Till 2016 iI have made really good money only with downloads because I have used not only Bandcamp. For example the albums “That´s Me”, “Mann der Arbeit”, “Body Music (Back In Mind)”  but also some other was available also at Itunes, Amazon, and around 250 other download possibilities. because of the good money I have made with it I deccide to update many of this songs with vocals. The original songs have only voice samples in it. I found a good vocalist - Till Völker aka Hanz Acid - and because of the fact that I know Claus Larsen I ask also him if he have time for vocals and writing lyrics too. I have paid Till for his voice and also Claus Larsen for a lot of lyrics and a lot of his voice for the new project which based at “Rhesus Factor” under the new name “Transponder”. The original songs from “Rhesus factor” had sometimes different names, because I gave them names similar the content of the used voice samples. Later with lyrics and voice of Claus and/or Till (but also a few other guest singer) this names sometimes changes a bit. For example “Rhesus Factor - Dinamo Zagreb” without lyrics and voice from till changes to “Transponder - Bad Blue Boys”. The music was exactly the same, most of the voice-samples too. In other songs the name was the same. For example : “Rhesus Factor - Collateral Murder” changes to “Transponder - Collateral Murder”. The music and all voice samples was the same : I put only the lyrics written by Claus Larsen of Leaether Strip in and he sing also the song.

Klaus von Annern : So both, Claus and Till was paid for their work?

Stefan : Yes, because of the fact that i pay my taxes in Germany I can tell you - what is also to proof with the tax decleration between 2011-2015 - I get only with this downloads and after paying Claus and Till nearly 8.000 €.

Klaus von Annern : So in every year around 2000 €?

Stefan : Much more, but after paying Claus and Till this was left.

Klaus von Annern : So when you have done this money WITHOUT the voice of Till and without the voice of Claus Larsen how much money have ScentArir Records done with downloads with so much songs “featuring Leaether Strip”`?

Stefan : When I only calculate with this money (after paying all) in the time WHITHOUT the “featuring Leaether Strip” songs in 6 years sure more than 12.000 €, but this is sure definitly more.

Klaus von Annern : Have you asked ScentAir Records because that?

Stefan : Yes, I have told Vladimir Romanov how much money I have made before the publishing of the compilation “Hammer And Anvil”, but he only laughed and told me that he have nothing sold from Transponder as download!

Klaus von Annern : Unbeliveable! As it looks like Russians like to lie, to betrayal and to steal not only the work of other peoples music. Will you warn every band which have or will publish something via ScentAir Records?

Stefan : Definitely when you don’t accept to be as band cheated and that you never get money from the downloads and for your Youtube plays. They promised everything, but do nothing. They are only interested to make money with other peoples work and pay nothing for it. 

Klaus von Annern : Why don´t you inform for example the ScentAir Records bands, post at comments of ScentAir Records this interview, post it also at the Discogs site of ScentAir Records and their release-subsites, post this also under the videos of ScentAir records at Youtube, ... ? There are sure many many other possibilities what can you do! Why not to put this interview at the Facebook site and make a payable advertisement so that every man and woman can read about that which have for example interested in Synthpop, Electropop, Electronica, New Wave, Darkwave, ...?

Stefan : After 6 years cheating Transponder and steal our money this is a very good idea.
