Subject: RE: BS: 'Should auld copyrights be forgot ?'
Glad to see T and Chet make up. This is a sticky issue. One further word. If anyone thinks that the perpetual copyright legislation is to protect the product of a creative artist for the sake of the artist, then they must be incredibly naive. This is the work of the business end of the industry, the publishers and the licensing agencies, who will reap far greater profit than the person who created any musical piece. The name of the game is profit, power, and control. The only creativity of interest to them is with numbers and ledgers. I need some air.
