Happy Copyright Extension Has Stolen Our Right To Have Coltrane In The Public Domain Day

but not happy at all about it.

@kkebreau @djsundog "This song is Copyrighted in U.S., under Seal of Copyright # 154085, for a period of 28 years, and anybody caught singin it without our permission, will be mighty good friends of ourn, cause we don't give a dern. Publish it. Write it. Sing it. Swing to it. Yodel it. We wrote it, that's all we wanted to do."

@kkebreau @djsundog @nightpool Dammit, they extended sound copyright in Canada to 100 years in 2012 it looks like. :(

@nightpool @djsundog @kkebreau

for sound recordings created before 1965, 50 years after fixation, but if the sound recording is published before the copyright expires, 50 years after its publication (but only where copyright expires before 2015).[36]
for sound recordings created otherwise, 50 years after fixation, but if the sound recording is published before the copyright expires, the earlier of 70 years from its publication or 100 years from fixation.[36]

@kkebreau @djsundog @nightpool Since he died in 1967, MOST of his stuff came into public domain here already.

Also looks like most of the time it would be 70 years, I missed the 'earlier of' line.

@djsundog @kkebreau @nightpool We are about to change our laws to move all our copyright to Life+70 :(

Canadian July 2018 law change (Hint: Legallization) 

@nightpool @kkebreau @djsundog And um, I've never used it, but a lot of people around here are the fact we are legalizing pot this summer?
