Here's something I've never been able to understand... an enormous quantity of 
these recordings were "made for hire" for the Library of Congress, in other 
words, paid for by the U.S. Government, and therefore owned by the citizens of 
the United States.  I don't understand how he, or his heirs, can ever claim 
ownership of this stuff.
