I actually wonder if things haven't changed with the advent of the interwebs. I mean, I have stuff on YouTube that will probably still exist in some shape or form that subsequent generations can access. If my grandkids want to see their grandpa play the drums, they'll be able to, assuming technology or legislation doesn't subtract what's currently available.
This isn't like 30 years ago where it was a big deal to have a recording of yourself and it involved something you couldn't distribute without having a record deal. Anybody can upload media to the internet and it becomes essentially public property.
