Also, when you think about it, the reason for this sudden interest
inextending copyright terms is quite simple!
At the end of this year, the first recordings by Elvis Presley
will slip into the public domain in much of the world (except
the US, of course!). These recordings are still "cash cows"
for whatever descendant firm of Eldridge Johnson, et al, may
hold the copyrights...
