Subject: RE: Origins: Kookaburra - possible copyright info.
G'day again,

I found a reference to Marion Sinclair's life as 1896 - 1988 - so all that Guiding must have heald her in good stead. As she seems to have died before copyright extensions came in, the song is copyright, in Australia, until 1 January 2039.

I found another reference that gave "Larrikin Music" as the copyright holders ... which seems odd - unless Warren Fahey, the founder of Larrikin, acquired the copyright for some project. If so ... it is probably now owned by Festival Music, who bought out Warren's "Indie" folk music label. If I can collar Warren, I'll ask if he knows anything about the rights ...

Regards,

Bob
