Alas NOTHING is going to be accurate ESPECIALLY for Canada
Short of hiring someone to do a copyright search on EVERY title, there is
little you can do and most current "lists" of titles claiming to have PD
information do not take into account the GATT treaty which RETROACTIVELY
copyrighted virtually all European films ( not that all rights holders are
paying attention)

Sorry
