Saw an interesting article in the paper the other day about how Copyright in sound recordings only lasts 50 years in the European Union but in the US it lasts 95 years (it used to be only seven years but they changed it to protect Disneys copyright on Mickey mouse)
The firsr Elvis recordings are going out of copyright in Europe next year and the record industry are getting their poverbial undergarments in a twist and lobbying the EU to extend their copyright term as well
So its looking like it will only be a few months before you can quite legally download "Thats Alright Mamma" unless you live in the US that his where youll have to wait another 45 years !
