Does this only affect people in the USA? Is FBI interested in live bootlegs?


Not those are losers who fall, but those who don't stand up.

I don't think they are interested in bootlegs.

To login to the queenhub is it needed to have a username and password. All people who want to login to the queenhub (also search tools) don't make a chance to login.

I don't think we can expect problems with the FBI

.... and lets face it....

if you're download released material from the Internet you deserve to get caught!

I have no problems with trading concerts and sessions.... but if you want something that's released - BUY IT!

Another fav artist of mine - Maria Mckee - has just released a live CD that I already had on bootleg cd (the show was broadcast on German radio) - I bought it anyway!!! What a fan!!!

The FBI itself only has jurisdiction in the USA (or in other controlled territories, maybe).

Anyway, they can provide information for any other government to act against individuals.

In a practical note: beware, after all, most of us have at least one neighbour or two that are behind bars for sharing the original 1975 version of Bo Rhap, don't we?

Cheers,

members must promise to provide between one and 100 gigabytes of material to trade, the equivalent of up to 250,000 songs, Mr Ashcroft said.....


that's an avarage of 0.4 MB per song. To me it sounds like they don't know what they are talking about OR they are just manipulating stuff to make it look worse. OR it's a typo :P

Don't you all know that the biggest threat to our great nation next to planes blowing up building is kids sharing MP3s! Ashcroft is an amazing person. Really looking out for our best interests. Why, without the RIAA and MPAA we wouldn't be treated to such great new musicians as...uh...umm...let's see...well...there are great movies at least like...uhh...hmmm...well...

I see no problem in sharing officially released recordings providing they are no longer sold in the shops or are deleted, like the You Don't Fool Me 12" vinyl remixes (hint, hint) :)

If record companies are so bothered about downloading music over the internet why don't they release as many recordings that their artists have done. How can it be copyrighted if it was never released in the country in the first place. I would rather buy all the songs that I have from official recordings than download them. But they haven't been released so I download. Simple.

Why should a company like Sony care about losing royalties when they sell the CD Rom burners and the blank CDs

Even songs (or almost anything else for that matter that can be proved to be an original work) can be covered by copyright without ever being released. This site will give you more info regarding UK and European laws. I Believe it slightly different regarding the USA.
