Austrian puts Canadian copyright laws to the test

An Austrian music publisher has sent a pair of cease-and-desist letters to a Canadian college student running a database of public domain scores. The problem? Though the scores are in the public domain in Canada, not all are yet in the public domain in Europe. By putting the scores on the web, Universal Edition AG argues that copyright law in both Canada and Europe is being violated.
