We recently parted ways with a band member and unfortunately not on the friendliest of terms. Everyone in the band always took on extra responsibilities from production, promotion etc. This ex-member would record the audio from shows live and made promo videos representing the band. Now that we have parted ways he has removed these items from our YouTube channel and shared hosting sites. We asked him about it and this was his response in part below: The videos you reference were my marketing materials and services. At no point did they ever become (the band) property. I don't owe the band anything. Same as my audio recordings. Same as any creative service, such as bit parts, dance moves, jokes or marketing content. You made your bed by not dealing with the issues that caused me to leave. Thus, everything I contributed to the band has been removed from your access. SO my question is, who truly "owns" these kind of things? Is it individual or band property? The band is still fundamentally the same less one member. It seems that this should still be ours to use until we can get new video, images and audio of his replacement.
