Off-topic: Music copyrights

Quoting from Dan Gillmor's Journal this morning:

"According to Pete Seeger, in this account (widely acknowledged in the folk world to be true) from the Museum of Musical Instruments, when Guthrie was singing on the radio in Los Angeles during the Depression, he'd mail mimeographed songs to listeners, and wrote on one:

"This song is Copyrighted in U.S., under Seal of Copyright # 154085, for a period of 28 years, and anybody caught singiní it without our permission, will be mighty good friends of ourn, cause we donít give a dern. Publish it. Write it. Sing it. Swing to it. Yodel it. We wrote it, thatís all we wanted to do.Ē
