Re: [ARSCLIST] 78s, SoundExchange, & SaveNetRadio
So if I go down to my local radio station - and Maui does have a
non-profit, low power (50 watts), simultaneous webcasting station that
all the jocks program their own music on - and play my pre-1972 78s, 45s
& LP's on a turntable, the station is not liable to pay any webcasting fees?
But if I transfer the originals to a personal CD the station will have
to pay a fee if I play it?
Just making sure what's what here.

Internet radio may be crucial to promotion of historical recordings,
an internet radio station plays only 78s and early LPs in their original
form, i.e. not from CDs, the recent webcasting fees do not apply.
sound recordings have no federal copyright protection and digital
dissemination fees cannot be collected for streaming them.
That said, SoundExchange could always try to go after internet
pre-1972 recordings through state courts, and music copyright fees
all recordings of post-1922 music. But again, this controversy does not
apply to any recording pressed before February 15, 1972.
