Nigel Parsons Trad songs and copyright issues (12) RE: Trad songs and copyright issues 14 Sep 20

It's too easy to oversimplify the situation:
Not all 19th century songs are "definitely in the public domain".
Although that may be the case in USA, in UK it is quite possible for a song to have been written in the 19th century by someone who lived beyond 1950. That song would not yet be public domain (author's death + 70 years)
