It seems to me that all of the reports produced by the Library of Congress'
National Recording Preservation Board have a major gap in their research.
Non of them seem to address how copyright law treats non-comercial
recordings. Some of these reports look at specific instances, such as
recordings of non-commercial radio stations, but they fall way short of
comprehensively treating the issue. Do any of you know much about this
