Wow! That's a tragedy! And what a project! I hope they can digitize all the booklets and 200,000 LP covers as well, although the article seems to state that they won't be able to. Horrendous loss. Maybe they should ask Google for help in the project......

I think this is an absolute tragedy. I have long enjoyed Radio Canada and pick it up whenever possible. I love they way they broadcast. But a collection of this sort should be a top priority for preservation. Knowing nothing about copyright law in Canada, is it any different for any of us to buy or sell LPs or CDs that we have purchased, and in some cases (many actually) making a huge profit? How does this affect copyright laws? As all of us who have substantial collections of music, scores, CDs, LPs, tapes, 78s -- the whole thing, will face when we kick the bucket, what IS going to happen to all this material? I have long thought Canada one of the nations of the world to have a deep love for classical music. Having visited there many times, been to concerts there, etc., I noted quite a difference in this regard from the USA - especially among younger people. But is that changing in Canada, too?
