Historical Recordings

Dear Adriano Ariani,

Thanks very much for your contribution of these historical performances. Unfortunately, we absolutely need to know the publisher information and publication date in order to determine the copyright status of these recordings in the USA. We also require that you provide the dates of the artists listed in the recordings in order to determine their copyright status in Canada. The situation with respect to older recordings is ridiculously complicated in the USA, so these would be available on the EU server if they are free in Canada as well. Canada's rule on recordings is fairly simple, like the regular copyright law is - copyright expires 50 years after the death of the last surviving author. Unless we have a response from you in about 24 hours, we will have no choice but to take these down as possible copyright violations.
