"You realize something needs to be done and you are the only one crazy
enough to do it. This happened when my law and music worlds collided: A
D.C. restaurant stopped booking live music due to license demands from a
Performance Rights Organization. I suggested that bands could play
"originals," and play from a book of Public Domain popular music – but
no such book exists – even though as of Jan. 1, 2019 more music is
entering the Public Domain.
I realized I knew the very best music, law, and library people to create
such a book, of 370 songs, and to give it away – in text and musical
notation software, free for creative use and adaptation – as an Open
Educational Resource. And to add up to 50 more "1924" tunes next Jan. 1."
