Re: Music Copyrights
By George Bogatko

Lots of opinions. Here's mine.

After the dust settled, I believe protection was extended to compositions that had been properly renewed prior to 1978. The extended period was 75 years after the initial copyright. So in January, that will make things copyrighted prior to 1921 public domain.

There is a "copyright office home page" on the net that contains a bunch of circulars. One of them (I believe) deals with public domain issues.
