In , while a post-Revolution schoolmaster, Webster devised an educational text for his new nation's schoolchildren, which was popularly known by as "The American Spelling Book.
It was a legal and per- sonal activist's achievement as well, because Webster had to fight hard on the legislative front for his scholarly ideas and creations. Since America had severed ties with British rule, English laws were also null — including the copyright writ called the Statute of Anne. So Web- ster had to saddle his steed in August and entreat the Continental Congress in Philadelphia to grant him copyright protection for his speller and its scheme of national grammat- ical instruction.
Congressmen like Virginia's Thomas Jefferson and James Madison supported Webster's bold request and told him the Articles of Confederation allowed Congress to advise each state to adopt copyright protections but gave Congress no power to enact or enforce such laws. Thus, Webster would have to personally confront every state legislature in the land to make his case.
In a quest that took until to complete, Webster spent much of his later 20s and early 30s traversing the American wilderness, from New England and the Middle Atlantic States to the South, galloping along like a Yankee peddler in weather foul and fair, in order to petition on the steps of 13 capitals for copyright protection. So learned did Webster become in the art of articulating the codes of justice that underline democracy that his pamphlet "Sketches Of American Policy" became an inspiration for the U.
Constitution that in replaced the Articles of Confederation. Article 1, Section 8, Para- graph 8 of the Constitution gave Congress the power, inter alia, "to pro- mote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited tines to authors and inventors the exclusive rights to their respective writing and discoveries.
The law remained in effect until , with the latest Copyright Act revised in and enacted in , which guarantees copyright holders life protection plus 50 years. Recently, to conform to international stan- dards, the term was extended to life plus 70 years. Words have music, both harmonious and discordant, and the language in a law can be a model of fairness or a crude tool of manipulation.
Laws were never meant to be a guide for people's best behavior but rather a last- ditch barrier against their wxjrst But in the case of recording artists' own- ership of music contractually leased to record labels, a four-line passage inserted without customary debate last November by the Recording Indus- try Assn. The amendment did this by including sound recordings as a category allegedly eligible for the first time to be deemed a work for hire— i.
The question-and- answer format of the newspaper story included no com- ments from outside copyright experts. So this columnist approached a nationally recognized copyright expert— the 12th such authority Billboard has thus far questioned on the issue — named Peter Jaszi, a professor of law who teaches domestic and international copyright at American Univer- sity in Washington, D.
C, and asked him, "Do you think the RIAA work- for-hire amendment was just a technical clarification' in the copyright law, and do you think this was the best way to make this change?
Although one can make arguments, the truth is that I don't think any of those arguments are self-evidently persua- sive. This change ought to be publicly discussed. It's a small change in terms of the number of words in the statute, but it's a very big change by potential implication when the heirs of recording artists discover they dont have a legacy they might have enjoyed.

Concurrently, Gaylord will cease operations of its 8-year- old Christian cable network, Z Music Television.
Wilson says MusicCoun- try will be positioned as a place where country music fits comfortably, but "what it allows us to do is have a much broader definition of the genres that can be included, which allows us to localize it.

Perez se- cured the acco- lade as the writer with the greatest num- ber of charting songs. The company plans to announce more specifics on its European operations at the end of May; it is now offering MusicCountry to cable and satellite operators throughout the continent.
Argentina, Mexico, and Europe are new markets for the network. CMT International previously was available in Europe, but Gaylord ceased operating the network there two years ago, after posting signif- icant financial losses. The timing was not because we didn't believe there wasn't a really good market for the channel; it was just that.
That's been the biggest thing holding country back internationally — the lack of airplay. We're going to incor- porate all the country music that's having success in Europe. Wilson says, "Now is a perfect opportunity to transition [CMT] to MusicCountry, which will have a broader appeal in a lot of the markets where just country music may not be as com- pelling.

In a press release, the FTC main- tains that minimum-advertised- price MAP policies were adopted to squelch discount music retailing and that they allowed the majors to increase their wholesale prices.
It further states that MAP policies were unlawful "facilitating practices" that in- creased the risk of collusion or inter- dependent conduct by the market participants. Under the decree, the majors are prohibited for seven years from linking the cooperative advertising funds they grant to retailers to the merchants' adver- tised prices.
The agreements also prohibit the companies from termi- nating relationships with any retail- er based on its CD prices. Merchants privately say that the elimination of MAP rekindles fears that price wars will break out and return music retail to the unprof- itability it suffered from , before strong MAP policies were adopted and enforced.
Garland Benefit. Paul McCartney recently attended a benefit dinner for Garland Appeal, a new charity dedicated to fighting cancer. Shown at the event, from left, are Bruce Lundvall. Heading the enterprise is Bruce Kimmel, who since has produced more than al- bums for Varese Sarabande Rec- ords for its "Spotlight" series, in- cluding albums from Broadway and off-Broadway shows and mu- sical theater and cabaret per- formers.
Kimmel says that he and his investors are negotiating with Varese Sarabande owner Chris Fuchler to buy the masters of some 75 Kimmel productions that would then be released on a new label Kimmel is heading, the Los Angeles-based Fynsworth Alley.

The band, which has already been active in the IFPI, will perform the task for the next two years. He was joined by the Corrs in meetings with politicians at the par- liament's headquarters in Stras- bourg, France. Europe's music industry owes a huge debt to him.

Succeed- ing such a renowned artist as Jean Michel Jarre, who has represented musicians and their rights regarding copyright and anti-piracy issues with such vigor, will be a challenge.

It did at least for those who survived it Halfway through record- ing, bass player Stuart David dropped out of the band to focus full-time on his other group, Looper. However, after struggling for six months to come up with the right feel for the new album, by last summer, band members began exchanging pieces of unfinished songs and even wrote songs together.

I wanted to have something that felt like it was a complete album.
It started in one place and ended somewhere. The piano-driven "Forever Friend" was written in one night. Some- one wanted me to sing 'Happy Birthday' to this person, but I did- n't want to just sing 'Happy Birth- day,' " says Stone.

The three began per- forming frequently in the Las Angeles area, quick- ly developing a buzz for their live shows. In Sher- inian's home studio, the Leopard Room, the group then began to write and she record material together. The resulting "Universe," which Sherinian describes as "extreme pro- gressive fusion, with definite rock- 'n'roll edges to it," will be released June 6 on InsideOut Music America.
Working with Donati and Mac- Alpine has been both challenging and rewarding, Sherinian notes. Besides co-producing "Universe," Sherinian manages the act, which will perform on a Hitman Agency-booked world tour this summer. The formation of the ad hoc label came as a direct result of Hausman and Mann setting up Mann's Web site and retail distribution for her new album, "Bach- elor No.
Hence the formation of UM, which will now be the home for Mann's album. Hausman says it's unclear whether Mann's Super- Ego imprint will continue to exist. It also hopes to release Penn's album, "MP4," which he's trying to buy back from Epic. UM will charge a distribution fee and take an additional percentage for the other services, based on record sales. Hausman, Mann, and Penn will jointly decide on other artists brought into the collective. They got their record back from Capitol, and we're going to discuss it.
In addition to album distribution through RED, the releases will be available through a UM Web site, which is under construction. The UM Web site will also link to the artists' individual sites.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the DVD release of Somewhere (Pet Shop Boys In Concert) on Discogs.
