Love story copyright Taylor Swift 2008 , this is the 2021 new rendition: from the Fearless Catalogue. Being the songwriter, she has the exclusive right to render and produce copies (copy–right, copyright). In 2008 however, she signed a pro forma recording contract where her royalties to the copies of the first version of the songs she wrote were surrendered to the recording company. In 2019, these contractual rights were eventually sold,
without apparently giving the songwriter the chance to buy back the contractual right to the royalties to the first versions. Now they are being re-sold at $300 million.
During the pandemic, she sang and re-recorded each one of the songs in the Fearless catalogue .
This is her third album recorded and produced while in quarantine in this worldwide lockdown .
