the artist DP (Public Domain ?)


recently, there was a lengthy discussion whether composer/lyricist ARs should be added to the artist DP ( ) and whether this artist should be there at all.

There are strong indications that DP is the GEMA representation of domaine publique (Public Domain).
I.e. if GEMA says "lyricist: DP" it means that the lyrics are public domain and not that there's a person "DP" who wrote them.

The discussion is here:

I submitted some edits to remove all ARs for the artist. As a result the artist itself will be removed by ModBot if these edits are accepted.
In addition to these, there are some open edits to add new ARs.
