The EFDSS has clear guidleines on copyright material. They are here.
When you say "material they collected" - since as far as I am aware the society has never done any collecting I am not sure what you mean here.
If you mean material to which they have been assigned copyright - I see nothing wrong with that. By definition they own the copyright.
If you mean material which they own but don't own the copyright you would need to give examples where they have done this. Virtually every record that came out on Topic Records, especially in the 1960's and of course many others since then, has material culled from the VWML on it at some point. I am not aware of the society claiming copyright on this.
Are you saying the EFDSS tried to claim copyright on something else? You would need to give chapter and verse to convince me.
Otherwise your accusation - for that is what it is - falls.
