There is no copyright infringement as far as the live Gould box is 
concerned. The new European copyright restrictions which extends the ban 
to re-release a recording by a second party will not be applied to 
recordings before 1962 (if I remember correctly). This does not apply to 
the US which has its own copyright laws.

The box you are referring to is the so called Goldberg Deluxe box which 
was supposed to have been released last year but will not appear before 
May this year. Unfortunately it does not contain any new material except 
some alternative takes from the 1981 recording. I would have hoped for 
video outtakes, but according to this contents list it does not. Let's 
hope they've changed their mind...
