Projects GrannyEmm had something to do with in the past. 

The Public Domain Information Project  was a plot I hatched back in the 1960s when the spots where I was an itinerant folksinger couldn't afford to pay ASCAP fees. As long as I (and others) played our own music or stuff that was no longer under copyright, no license fees were required. In 1992 I put PDinfo on the web as a non-profit service to musicians who couldn't afford royalties and it immediately attracted heavy traffic and a LOT more work than I could handle. Eventually a younger, more energetic person came along to adopt it and carry it to the next level. Now it's a commercial site located in Atlanta, Georgia, and continues to be a major source of information for those looking for an alternative to the commercial music mainstream. If you haven't visited recently, do. You'll find many additions beyond what I had gathered. Please support the project by buying your unencumbered music source materials from Lynn at PDinfo so this fine service can continue to be offered.
