      Anthony Baldwin, in a letter to the International Herald Tribune, hints that there might be problem with the use-or-lose clause in connection with dead artists. You can gauge the likely impact by looking how much material recorded post-1958 is around at the moment and this does include at least some music of interest to the list.
