Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

Saw this little item in the newspaper yesterday:
If Warner has now agreed to accept the settlement, I'm assuming that means they've given up -- no lengthy appeals -- unless some other party decides to appeal. (Can some other party appeal?) Settlement to be finalized next month, and of course anything can happen in the meantime -- but we'll soon find out! Fingers crossed! If this does actually go PD, we ought to celebrate with an LV version -- perhaps for the annual anniversary in August? (The time between March and August would be long enough to watch what happens, to see if the PD status is the real deal.)Ending a three-year class-action battle, Warner, its affiliates and others who claimed ownership of the song's disputed copyright agreed that if U.S. District Judge George King approves the deal they will no longer "charge any person a fee for use of the song," the filing stated. "All parties believe the song will be in the public domain on the final settlement date," which is expected in March, the agreement added.
