Taylor Swift has been the protagonist of many scandals and fights with other celebrities , and although she has always taken each of them with class, she always has something to talk about for a long time.

However, this time many have been on his side in his "fight" against Scooter Braun , a celebrity manager , mainly known for being the manager of Justin Bieber, and recently have also signed a contract with Demi Lovato.

The point is that Taylor Swift's old record label did not allow him to fully own the rights to his first albums, and Scooter Braun bought part of those rights , which puts everything in a very uncomfortable situation.

And is that despite being the composers and performers , often the same singers do not have all the rights to their songs , which means they can not manipulate them freely or win all the royalties that they produce. And in addition to Taylor Swift , there have been other singers who went through the same thing, completely losing the rights to their own music .
