    I think when it comes to copyright, those issues really do apply. If anybody remembers the sailing vessel Mimi from the TV shows "The Voyage of the Mimi" and "The Second Voyage of the Mimi" that used to air on PBS, the actual sailing vessel was kept in Gloucester and used to travel from New England to the Gulf of Mexico where it was open to the public as a visitor attraction, and available from that sailing vessel was a cassette and songbook called "Sea Songs from the Mimi Crew" made in 1988 by Peter Marston, owner of the sailing vessel and some freelance musicians and self-published under the name "The Barn School". Having owned a copy of that long out-of-print cassette from when I went on that boat, I once emailed somebody who performed on that tape and after she said she didn't have the original recording anymore, I offered to send her an old copy so it could be made into iTunes for rerelease, but she rejected the idea saying that the tape will never be available on modern format because "there are too many issues with the people who performed on that tape. They are scattered everywhere, and would never grant the necessary permissions. There's plenty of good sea music elsewhere."
