Re: [ARSCLIST] Brunswick Records rights/Universal
There is at least one more CLIR report in work that affects this issue, that
relating to broadcasts and other audio sources than the commercial ones.
There is also the push in other copyright fields relating to orphan works.
Things are happening, albeit slowly, to more fully inform those considering
future copyright legislation. Hang in there.

Looks like Universal is going to focus on LP-era material. That's fine, and
I hope they do a good job with these things and make them available at
at-least CD quality. But the fact that they're not touching the 78-era
material is telling. It helps make the case that the vast majority of this
material has NO commercial viability now or in the forseable future. Plus
the digitizing costs must be much higher.
Is there any progress in the general drive to make earlier sound-recording
rights similar to other contemporaneous material (i.e. pre-23 PD, post 22
into PD starting 2018)? With all this data about unavailability, and now
this first seeming corporate reaction, such a schema should be an acceptable
compromise to all parties.
Hope springs eternal.
All opinions mine. Nothing to do with LOC. Etc.

Speaking of Universal, they've been in the press this past week for
unveiling plans to digitize 100,000 recordings in their archives.
