They produce consistenly well-engineered recordings of repertoire that the big labels wouldn’t touch (such as the work at the center of this case). Hyperion is, for me, a “desert island” label.

I sympathize, but I think we need to be rigidly dogmatic on this point. If every note Sawkins wrote down was what he truly believed was Lalande’s original work, then he cannot claim copyright, however much labor it cost him to deduce what Lalande wrote. If Sawkins tries to make his claim in the U.S. as well as the U.K. I hope we find some way of resisting it.

Also, as I understand from the London Times, Sawkins was paid for his work.

Did Hyperion publish Sawkins’ performances of the Lalande works, or other artists’ performance(s) of said works? Is the rub here that once someone publishes a performance of out-of-copyright music, they gain a copyright to any future published performances of said music (at least, within their copyright term)? If so, I don’t follow the logic.
