IMSLP is a site that tries very hard to respect the various international and country treaties and laws regarding copyright. By far, the US is the worst offender for the life of copyright...
Incorrect. It's Mexico @ 100 years

... no small thanks to Mickey and the folks at Disney.
Disney had little to do with this. The EU Parliament, however, did.

In what detail have you read the Copyright Act of the US?
In my case, every word. I worked on it in 1976 and make my living enforcing some of its provisions.


I don't go into my work — perhaps when I retire in a few years. Any comments I make on the subject are likely to be accompanied by links.
Thank you for correcting me on Mexico. Do you hear a lot about enforcement down there? My jot was not necessarily at the literal life of copyright, but the enforcement of it during it's time.

This is what I was referring to considering copyright law. Are you saying that Disney had no stake in lobbying and pushing for copyright reform when revisions to copyright were being enacted?

I was employed with a Mexican orchestra some years ago. I would say most definitely *not*. Many times we performed from illegal photocopies.
