There is several new RDM-records (France) CD albums for sale with the original soundtrack on e-bay. I cannot find any informations on this album. Is it a bootleg?

All the RDM CDs are made from LP's and not master tapes. It can not be considered
as bootleg because they abuse from new european law for music copyrights, which is
50 years after the beginning of copyright the music fall into public domain.
Soundtracks until 1966 are now free of copyright. So anybody can use LPs or even
k7 from the soundtracks until 1966 to make a poor quality CD. Next year will be
1967...
