Hi Dick,

can you expand on your comment about Woody's attitude to copyright? Your statement certainly seems at odds with his espoused attitude to the restriction of ordinary people to do as they wish without let or hinderance, including the shared enjoyment of "private" property. Is the problem with his songs a manifestation of his estate, or is there evidence that this was his own wishes?
