This Seems to Be Out in Left Field. reports on a recent New York state ruling in "N.Y. High Court Expands Copyright Protection for Recordings." From the article: "In an unprecedented expansion of common law copyright protections, the Court of Appeals Tuesday said recording artists are shielded in perpetuity under New York standards even when their foreign copyrights have long since expired. Attorneys predicted the 7-0 ruling in Capitol Records v. Naxos of America, 30, would have a significant impact on the recording industry."
