    As a musicologist and librarian, I believe this to be an absurd result.

    A Library of Congress report indicates that the miscellany of state laws protecting pre-1972 sound recordings will extend copyright protection until 2067, creating a situation where some recordings dating to the 19th century are not available in public domain. The Council on Library and Information Resources report addresses the question of what libraries and archives are legally empowered to do to preserve and make accessible for research their pre-1972 sound recordings....

    Absurd doesn't quite cover it. There should be a stronger word!
