Hmm . . . I would like to be sure of the rules here. . . . Isn't there - as I had imagined - a big difference between on the one hand a CD made later from (some of) what was primarily a publicly broadcast event, and on the other hand a broadcast of something that is primarily created as a CD? In the first case, does the creator of the CD somehow retrospectively acquire rights over tapes people may have quite legitimately made from the broadcast before the CD existed?

In the case of works such as Foulds' World Requiem, or Brian's Gothic Symphony, where the works were recorded in performance as they were being broadcast, copyright most certainly applies, in this case to Chandos. A contract was made with the concerts' organizers to professionally record the events for eventual release. We are entitled to retain our off-air recordings for private listening, but not sharing, since they were public broadcasts. But Chandos now has the exclusive right to sell their recording of this event. Even if we don't share them for profit, our sharing still potentially impacts Chandos' profits in the same was as sharing any commercial CD impacts its rights holder.
