Over the last few months, information about copyright of music stirred my interest. My first impression: it is not consistent throughout the world. The second: One wonders how it could be enforced, internationally. And maybe, I should not be worried at all, being only a small supplier of music and specialising in Tango only.
To show my intentions to do the right thing, I decided to take all the songs out of my site, which are not 50 years old, at least. The research on the release dates was very time-consuming. I wondered if the producers, composers and performers are concerned why would there not be a register? Anyhow, it is done.
For my own memory, I added a plus sign to the file name of a song when it was older than 50 years and a minus, if less. The release date I included in the mp3 metadata of the songs.
During the research, I also found information on singers, composers and lyricists which I added too.
Beside that, really nothing much has changed… I am still adding songs continuously and there are more to come. Come for a visit and have brows. Stay in touch.
