Re: [ARSCLIST] Orphan Audio Symposium?

----- Original Message ----- From: "VICTORIA" <vkeddie@xxxxxxxxx>
Under fair use section 108h in report, it states an exemption for libraries
and archives as well as non profits to "reproduce, distribute, perform, or
display a copy" of a work from the last 20 years of its copyright term if
done for preservation, scholarship or research objectives. but first has to
undergo a "reasonable investigation" --i am not sure what exactly the
reasonable investigation entails beyond seeking the legitimacy of the
organization. ?

Does this then mean that sound recordings will become legally "available"
on January 1, 2047...since they are protected until 1/1/2067?! Of course,
I will be 115 years old then...?!
