Copyright questions concerning classical musicians from over a hundred years ago?
Like Beethoven, Mozart, and Liszt?
Are we free to play their songs any time we’d like, since they’ve been deceased for a long time now or do their copyrighted works still apply like every other musician? Is copyright for life, even after death?
How are these musicians’ works protected and who protects them today?
