No. BoRhap/TSMGO might have gotten in the top 10, but I'm sure AWT never reached that... As far as I know it wasn't even released in the US as a single.

Seems like that site 'borrowed' a LOT from Ron's Queenpicturehall.com site.

"borrowing" is common these days.. too bad.. I made the same mistake seven years back and now I know how that person felt. Let's flame this guy

Yeah, The Show Must Go On/Bohemian Rhapsody was considered a double-A single here, so just as 'Fat Bottomed Girls' or 'We Will Rock You' are entitled to their chart positions, 'The Show Must Go On' is entitled to this number 2 position.

Even though 'Wayne's World' and Bo Rhap is mostly to thank for the single's success, the cover of the cassingle was the artwork of 'The Show Must Go On' and I like to feel that at least one song from Innuendo charted here.

As far as borrowing, I don't see anything similar to QPH at this one. I feel it's all about sharing info as fans. Anyone is free to use my work.. scans, text, even the edited music I've shared and do what they want with it. I suppose the text belongs to me but everything else is just a variation of copyrighted materials that don't belong to me to begin with.

wrong... the webmaster took pics (scans) from my site without asking. It took me a lot of time till I got so many scans (most have been taken from my own collection) and now somebody simply takes them without asking. Many other people simply asked for it in the past and I always give 'permission'. I'm not that bad.
If he took some regular UK sleeves that's fine with me, but not some sleeves that can only be found on my site.

Well I suppose if it means that much to you, you could employ some advanced techniques like disabling right-clicking to make it harder for folks to save stuff.

HMV Japan has such nonsense for their 'large picture'. I swear, it made me take the extra 4 seconds to find and copy from my cache instead. :-P

No. Making it a bit harder to prevent copying is silly in my eyes. There are always ways to copy whatever you want. It's just a waste of *my* time to install such methods. It's just a matter of good manners. Using one sleeve is ok, but not 50% of the site. There was once a site who copied everything, incl the discography and all other texts. Amazing..
Anyway, I contacted the webmaster and everything's ok now.
