    Just wondering if anyone knows who owns what as far as past VH recordings.
    Does WB or VH own the rights to songs recorded while the band was under contract with WB? If WB does own the rights do they own the rights to unreleased material? How about video footage? Could Sam or Dave(or even Gary) put an unreleased song on thier website?

    Van Halen owns the songwriting rights to whatever they wrote, differing only on the era. In other words, DLR doesn't get a cut from any Sammy songs, etc.

    The recorded catalog, however, is under Warner Bros records and they own the master recordings.

    Now that VH has broken off from WB, WB will likely repackage the masters any way they can to make the most $ possible. I think VH has little to say about this now, but I don't know for sure.

    Chances are, you'll see new VH boxed set(s) and compilations coming out in the future, and it'll all be under WB's direction.
