Thread Name: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
On my homepage I stated that all songs and tunes on my website are believed to be in the public domain. I forgot that I copied "Jess MacFarlane" out of 'The Universal Songster', and published it in Folk Music Journal also, so I 'own' another copyright. I didn't send along a copy of its tune, "Ay Waukin O", so I don't own rights to that, and you and Caroline can continue to sing it, Sandy. As long as no one else has copyrighted it, that is.
