A bunch of rare Bob Dylan performances is about to be released on Friday, coving his early years. The compilation has a strange title, Live 1962-1966: Rare Performances From the Copyright Collections, but there's a reason behind it. According to European copyright law, recordings older than 50 years fall into public domain, so the release of the rare recordings is a way of circumventing the law. Many artists from that era are opening up their vaults as a way of retaining control over their music, which has the added benefit of fans gaining access to the works.
