Re: [ARSCLIST] Gowers considered recommending shorter copyright term
I'm looking for any archival audio recordings of the labor leader/activist
Rose Schneiderman. Might anyone out there know of any? This is for a radio
segment for TALKING HISTORY. Thanks.

Are they paying royalties as the latest legal advice I got (from UK) was
that whilst the artist might not get the benefit, the songwriter and someone
who composed the music still has rights for 70 (75?) years after their death
and they must give clearance.
