And why is that? Because the vast majority of music people want to hear is not out of copyright. It's probably fair to blanket it that NO popular music is out of copyright. How much do you even know if you don't know the term is "copyright?"
Nice work turning the argument on it's head. The point is that non-commercial restoration/distribution/whatever is enabled through copy-write reform.
Only if the source material is available. Not sure how you think anyone will be able to restore The Outing, a movie unavailable outside of VHS, when the only source available is... VHS. Not much can be done there. And, if someone were to pick up the VHS and try restoring it as a hobby, it's doubtful they'd be stopped.
