Thread Name: How to check out a copyright
Subject: RE: How to check out a copyright
The way I understood the scenario, we were to assume that Joe P. was dead, and that the copyright ran for a period of 70 years after his death, so nobody could do anything until the time ran.

                Maybe I misunderstood, but in that event, what would be the penalty of publishing the songs. Who would come after you, and what could they do.
