The EMI archives are one of the treasures of civilisation, like the
Louvre or the Hermitage.
The question is whether the care of such archives should depend only on
a commercial company with limited resources. It seems to me that
governments, or perhaps UNESCO, should be supporting the preservation of
such archives and the availability of the recordings.
Nobody expects the British Museum to be run by a company for profit.
