Thread Name: How to check out a copyright
Subject: RE: How to check out a copyright
If Joe Pumpernickel wants his songs published but it won't make him (or the publishers) any money then he is entitled to authorise people to publish them wherever.
Okay, so he forgoes a little in royalties (doesn't sound as if he's losing much). Free publication is not prohibited, it is in the gift of the copyright holder!
