OK, this is a complex matter. A few weeks back I saw a guy perform one of the old Sherlock Holmes radio plays. He was good. Afterwards I went up to him and asked him about how much he'd paid (copyright fee) to put the show on. He stared at me blankly.
Now, I know the radio shows are in the public domain, how does public performance stand here? Is there a simple answer? I guess if we knew how much Warners paid up for the movie that would help.
