The initial announcement

Taylor first announced the news of her documentary on Twitter in November last year.

It came out during a rant hitting out at Scooter Braun for taking over the label which owned her first six albums.

'This isn't the way I had planned on telling you this news.'

Taylor told her fans at the time that the Netflix documentary could be cancelled.

The reason being, 'Scott and Scooter have declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project...'

'Even though there is no mention of either of them or 'Big Machine Records' anywhere in the film.'

However, according to Taylor, the music moguls did say they'd allow her use the music if she does two things for them:

  1. She must agree not to re-record copycat versions of her songs next year.
  2. She must, 'Stop talking about [Scott] and Scooter Braun.'

When Scooter bought over Big Machine Records, Taylor made the decision to re-record all her old songs.

That way she would have ownership of them again.

Judging from Taylor's recent documentary announcement, it looks like some sort of agreement has been made.

A source tells Variety that the, 'songs have been cleared [for use in the Netflix documentary].'
