    Mort and James:

    I think the world of Jordi Pujol and if it weren't for him, an entire legacy of recorded jazz would be lost. As I understand it, the copyright rules in Barcelona, where Fresh Sound is headquartered, say that after 40 years, a record work, among other things, enters the public domain.

    That's the law, and of course you've all read that may change.

    However, I am told that whenever "new" material of any kind, whether unreleased tracks, photos or anything else is included in a release, the family and/or artists' estate is duly compensated.
