The following web page contains a short article and an 18-minute TedTalk. The information presented claims that 2 people have created computer software which has determined and written every possible combination of melodic notes that can be used in a Song. A MIDI file (digital notes) has also been created and released, online, for free.
The 2 people say, because of this, any melody which has not yet been Copyrighted, is free to use and that this will help reduce the possible, future court cases of Copyright infringement.
Some of the Comments, however, state that this is simply a Publicity Stunt and this effort will not hold up in court.
Look over the following information and decide for yourself. I'm simply sharing this story because, being a Musician, I find it interesting and because it may help open a Music Community dialog where a fair outcome for every Composer, Performing Artist and Listener.
