Subj: [kl] copyright question
Date: Wed, 18 Jul 2001 09:38:03 -0400

This question has come up before in another situation with a choral director
arranging a popular song for her choir to perform in her school. Do bands do
this also? I am wondering how copyright makes this possible. Does anyone
know the answer to this?
