Croatia came up early with the beginnings of sound industry. Nobody is taking care of Croatian sound heritage systematically, yet. Sound carriers are exsposed to physical deterioration. Devices for the reproduction are becoming obsolete. Sound recordings have to be preserved. It is worldwide accepted opinion that the best way to preserve analogue sound materials is by migration into digital form. All processes are standardized on the national level, according to the recommendations of professional associations (IASA). Every migration of a document is copying, therefore subject of the copyright law. In the countries where the concern of the national sound heritage is intensive, the copyright law anticipates the possibility of copying for the purpose of preservation. In Croatia, sound recordings are deposited in various institutions: archives (production companies, archives of broadcasting companies, film archive), libraries, museums and private collections. Based on the survey, selected collections are presented by the content, contemporary condition, actions for the preservation, and plans for the digitisation, preservation and presentation. Along with the proposal for the change of Croatian copyright law, it will propose model for the digitisation, long-term preservation and presentation of sound recordings from the Croatian musical sound heritage.
