Hi all, I am unclear on this subject.
Obviously any material that is still available for sale in record stores is not allowed. No problem there.
Sharing single edits and b-sides IS allowed (unless they are now available in the singles-box) although these versions of songs were officially released!?
Anything solely released once on an obsolete medium (VHS, Vinyl) is allowed? (meaning the aforementioned single edits and 12'' remixes etc.)
Which means if the Dutch single version of Flick of the Wrist may be shared, so must the VHS of Rare Live be..
I could use some clarification..


thank you

I hear what you are saying but i would stick to the unofficial stuff.Just to be on the safe side.

You are on about stuff like Rock In Rio(although i think that that was released on DVD in somewhere like Japan or something.Correct me if i'm wrong).Or singles like Liar/Doing All Right(In which Liar was butchered down from 6:25 mins to 3:03 mins).Believe you me,you dont want to hear this single.Even the flip side sounds as though they have done something to that track.Soundwise.

Check around cos i think you can still get some of the American CDs which have the 12 inch versions of songs on them.For example.Amazon.com are selling Queen The Works @ $13:98.It has the extended versions of Radio Gaga and I Want To Break Free.Plus I Go Crazy too

Just an idea.

i would assume if has been released ,whether obsalite or not....it is still official.
i may be wrong ,but i dont think so...
just cos something was released on say betamax video years ago,and is obsalite.its still official
ie,ghits 1...i have the beat video...so official.

I think the general rule is that if it has been in any way released then you should not post it. There are alots of tracks I would like to share here, but it's best to stick to the rules.

Do you think bootleg mixes would be ok? I have a couple of AOBTD 12" I could share.

Or what about the Queen/Bowie megamix which was posted on here a few years ago.

I cant remember what date it was posted.

Bootleg mixes are always ok to share as they are not official releases.

I will keep to the general rule of 'if ever released then not share', sounds very logical.
This of course can not stop anyone checking the known torrent sites every once in a while for possible shares.. ;)
Ow well, the internet can be a terrible place, so please everyone.. only download from this site and never official stuff!
