Do you know something we don't?

Wondering if the recent Florida ruling will have any additional bearing on the decision to release the JWH outtakes?

From today’s front page:

Breaking:
Florida Supreme Court Rules That Oldies Recordings are Public Domain

So this complicates things a bit. A bombshell decision from the Florida Supreme Court effectively says that recording copyrights didn’t exist before 1972.

Possible but quite unlikely. Maybe we should wait if a possible Supreme Court decision on the matter will come before the end of the year.
If not, then all the recordings before 1972 will be free in Florida only (that doesn't mean however that Sony will have to release any material, there isn't a "take it or lose it" clause like the EU copyright directive). Also, I don't think it changes much to the current situation. In the times of free music on the internet, it is more an acknowledgement of the fact than a game-changer.
Don't expect much of it.

Was posted with a bit of facetiousness.
IMHO, not really sure if it matters what only ONE state does.
Especially Florida, ha ha.

Just really looking forward to whatever copyright release emerges.
