Emanuel Vardi’s Copyrights

Copyright card catalogAs a working musician, Emanuel Vardi paid careful attention to securing his intellectual property rights.  At the Copyright Office of the Library of Congress, I searched the entire collection to find records spanning roughly 5 decades of his active and lengthy career.  Here is a working list of the copyrights I was able to find, which are listed here since they are public records.  The Copyright Office is in the process of digitizing these records, but it really was helpful to visit the collection in-person to see everything that wasn’t yet available online.  From these records, I have been able to create a basic* timeline of his activities and collaborations as a composer and arranger.  Since not all of his works are widely available, sometimes the only record I have found of his output are in these card catalog entries.

*Since registering and depositing copyrighted material was no longer required after 1978, this method of research wouldn’t be as effective for studying more contemporary output or for finding works-for-hire where the copyright is registered to the employer.

As always, please feel free to get in touch, if you have any suggestions or further information to help with my project!
