Thread Name: Mudcat CD maybe?
Subject: RE: Mudcat CD maybe?
Norton, the life of the composer or performer is irrelevant. A copyright is a piece of intellectual property with a life of its own. As I understand it, anything before 1923 is probably safe. Anything after that may well still be under copyright, and SOMEBODY owns it and wants payment.

On another subject, I would be willing to commit to buying a copy of the CD(s) if the cost isn't greater than "in the neighborhood" of $10 US. MAYBE I'd go as high as $15, but that's pushing it.
