Thread Name: Sonny Bono Copyright Extension
Subject: RE: Sonny Bono Copyright Extension
I'm also quite lost on this subject.

What specifically is the law on posting lyrics on the Internet? And what about midi files? (I've purposely not directed people to the DT for songs that I think were probably written in the last 50 years.) Can a person put a midi file and the words to Winter Wonderland on their website?

Concerning the Internet...Is there a clear law defining these things or is it all interpretation so far?

Whenever I ask my "politically in-the-know" friends, they have no clue. I've also pounded a reporter for a feature article to raise public awareness of this...but no luck. If I knew what to say to my congressman, I would. Any suggestions?
