Tennessee legislation introduced for pre-1972 sound recordings

Tennessee legislation introduced for pre-1972 sound recordings (Jan. 31, 2014) – HB 2187 / SB 2187 was introduced in Tennessee to provide state-level copyright protection for pre-1972 sound recordings, which are not copyrighted under US federal law. A smattering of states clearly apply copyright-like protections for pre-1972 sound recordings, but the legal status is currently a patchwork.  The Copyright Office has recommended that pre-1972 sound recordings be brought under federal copyright law, and Congress may consider that recommendation in its ongoing review of copyright law.
