Hello Mary,

Kevin Bazzana answers you CBC question like this:

"As I understand it, CBS/Sony has always held
the rights to release GG's recordings (from whatever source) beginning with
his first Goldberg recording--which is why the CBC, in the early 1990s,
could only release earlier, pre-1955 radio/TV recordings on its own label,
recordings dating from before the CBS contract. So Sony still holds the
rights to release GG's post-1955 stuff as CDs, DVDs, etc., even CBC
material, though of course this all had to be negotiated with the CBC
(that's one of the reasons this process took so long--everything had to be
renegotiated between Sony and the CBC). All of this is slightly complicated
by the fact that anything before 1961 is now in the public domain in most of
the world, which means that (outside the USA, anyway) I myself could sell
bootleg CDs of 1957 CBC broadcasts on my street corner and it wouldn't be
illegal. (This applies to audio, anyway; the copyright laws in video might
be different, I actually don't know.)"
