Copyright Laws Severely Limit Availability of Music

The Library of Congress has reported that over 70 percent of American music recorded before 1965 is not legally available in the United States. Older materials fall out of print as the buying public's interest decrease and the copyright holders have low monetary reasons to reoffer the older materials.

Listen to the NPR news story that even offers some samples of the music no longer available, unless you locate a collector.
