Actually, because I live in Canada, I can reissue anything from my
half-vast 78rpm archive that was recorded before January 1, 1955;
in fact, I could offer the copies on the Internet, but all you
US-ians would be breaking the law if you bought them! I would,
however, have to pay the Harry Fox Agency to be entirely legal.
Note that this is as I understand it...
