Thread Name: copyrights
Subject: RE: copyrights
There IS a web site somewhere which attempts to identify PD material, but its songs are mostly very old (over 100 years) and it does not identify specific versions which may be subject to more recent copyright. Sorry I don't have the URL.

Secondly, YES arrangements are certainly subject to copyright, even arrangements of PD tunes. If a copyright holder objects, it can be up to the courts to decide (As George Harrison found with My Sweet Lord)
