I recently saw an Ebay offer to sell W. C. Handy sheet music...the guy who began popularizing Blues right around the time upright pianos and Victrolas became affordable...the add was posted by a Spanish guy who is not so good at English:

FOR SALE: Sheet music, tunes by Toilet Handy.

In Europe W.C. means Water Closet, which in the USA is a toilet.

That's one sure way to avoid copyright violations. Technically it's too old, but I've seen people claim silly stuff.

You could probably find it on archive.org for free.

P.S.: "Handy" actually means mobile phone in German.
