Question by AlejandroInTheStates: If you render a song not a thoroughgoing translation do you have rights to it?
I want to translate a song that I love into English, it will not be a perfect translation since some things just would not make sense. But I was wondering if I would have rights to it or if the original writer would have any rights. The song will have a lot of similarities (if translated) but not exactly the same. Would I then keep the rights to it?
