This is the outcome of a lawsuit filed by a music company against funeral homes. These homes usually played some Buddhist chants during the ceremony.
According the the music company the Buddhist chants constitute an infringement of their copyrights on certain Buddhist chant music. They even recorded audio and video footage earlier this year at funeral homes all across the nation to evidence the infringement.
Although funeral home owners complained to the Ministry of the Interior during a meeting to discuss funeral regulations, the Association of Taiwan Commercial Funeral Unions has decided to change the policy: as of no the funeral music would be handled by the families of the deceased, to avoid IPR infringement problems.
