Aye I getcha there.
"The reason for this is that this practice is ILLEGAL - and every so often Queen Productions DO trawl the Internet and DO get nasty."
"Worst case scenario is that this site can be severely damaged or even forced to close down - I know that sounds a bit melodramatic"
Not at all, if anything it sounds realistic.
"-but none of us would like that to happen - would we?"
Would it get rid of BPP? :D
"If material has mistakenly been shared in the past (For example Dark's 2005 Teo Torriate) does that mean we have to keep compounding the mistake?"
Of course not. For the record, I downloaded that because I couldn't buy the thing in a shop. Bad me.
"I think that sharing the Knebworth video, and or the 'unreleased' tracks may be a grey area, therefore some could logistically argue in favour of uploading these."
Actually that's what I was getting at in my post. I wasn't saying 'Why can't we download Knebworth', more 'if the Knebworth I'm downloading was recorded amateurly, can I get it that way?'.
"However, I can not see how any one can successfully argue for the uploading of such blatantly obviously official material which can be found in almost any High Street store."
Of course not.
Yah, I really was just saying since this has already been uploaded once or twice here, your information would be better appreciated in the actual Announce Thread. Either that, or one could link the person who asked in the first place to that thread.
