Lessig estimates that in the book world, there are approximately 18,000,000 books, 16% Public Domain
9% in Copyright and In Print, 75% in Copyright but Out Of Print. I wonder what the equivalent figures are for Music.

It seems to me that just as in books there is a large body of music that is in copyright but is unavailable to buy anywhere. This also seems like a golden opportunity for somebody like Amazon to have a print on demand service on CD and for a legal AllOfMp3 style site that sells only back catalogue, deletions and out of print music.
