Hi everyone. I don't think a lot of you know me, but my name is Emery. Carolus and I have been working on the "copyright information project" for quite some time, and we created a detailed page for US copyright law and Canadian copyright law. I'm creating this topic in the forums so that there is a convenient place to discuss certain issues that I'm sure will arise. For example, we are working on a sortable list, which I think will be a good resource for the following reasons: it will be able to group countries by continent, length of copyright (death of author and publication), and also which treaties the country follows. Another reason for the sortable list is that it will help us figure out how to group some countries together when we write their pages. The following link is to the draft page:http://imslp.org/wiki/IMSLP:Copyright_I ... /MainDraft
We will be beginning the page on the EU soon, and everyone is welcome to share ideas on how to best approach this. It will not be easy, and I don't think I really know too much about the subject; hopefully we can finish this by the end of January.
Anybody who would like to join and lend a hand is welcome. Even if you are not a copyright reviewer, you are welcome to proofread. My conventions aren't always the best, as the helpful copy-editors can testify.
