Vintage recordings may have been published in attempt to extend copyright protection

Alex Hern discusses the brief appearance of Rolling Stones tracks on YouTube as a means of extending copyright.

According to Variety magazine, which first reported the brief publication, the explanation could lie in the European Union’s copyright directive. Under EU law, sound recordings are covered by copyright for the first 50 calendar years after they were made – unless they have been β€œlawfully communicated to the public”, in which case the copyright term extends a further 20 years.
