    So I was going through my parents attic and found the original 1981 edition of this: The Silly Songbook (9780941599559): Esther L. Nelson, Joyce Behr: Books: Reviews, Prices & more

    About half the songs have the specific copyright information of the author in small print after each individual song, but the rest have nothing. Are the rest of the songs public domain, or do they fall under the copyright of the author?

    Would there be any legal ramifications if I wanted to record my own childrens' cd?

    Thanks for any help, and please let me know if you need any addition info.
