Well I believe that is what has happened with some published music. From
1993 till the implementation of the Digital Millenium act, all of the
music of Rachmaninoff (d. 1943 + 50 years from date of death = 1993) was
in public domain. Due to some of the specifications of the new law, I
believe that some of his music is once again under copyright... and is
still listed at Harry Fox.
