They only (re)release something new when they're ABSOLUTELY SURE that they're gonna make an extra buck off of it.

Official but unreleased? What do you mean?

I think he's questioning the legality of bootlegs and material like that and the copyright issues that can be argued for and against them.

I think the original poster is venting his anger at not being able to download out-of-print stuff via Queenzone.

No like,the Budapest show,it was never shared here because people say it's official,but it hasn't been realeased in the U.S. as far of my knowing.

(this is not a request for the Budapest show,that's just an example)

So if they have all these official things why do they not release them?

They don't care. That pretty much sums it up.

They have released them. Just not in the US.

It's not as if "nothing is released until it's released in the US", is it?

I think the point is, that heaps of stuff had been released in the past, but these days it seems to be out of print. Which is annoying for new fans, because they have to buy stuff from ebay or anywhere, and they can't be sure about the quality or things are hard to get too.

And because VCRs are so out of fashion now that most people don't have them, they can't watch Greatest Flix I (which includes the old original Bicycle Race video or the intro compilation video with Killer Queen), Box of Flix (videos in original format, including the Innuendo videos and a different video for Liar), Rare Live, Budapest, Magic Years, Champions of the World, most of the first half of the Tribute Concert which was on VHS...

Record players are even more out of fashion, but you probably want A Human Body, A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling, Blurred Vision etc. without downloading it as mp3 or bootleg, since you're a "good" fan. So you got to get the original singles and can't play them maybe...

Lots of reasons why things have become rare-ish these days, and I understand a fan's or new fan's point of view. But then...there's not a lot we all can do about it, other than saying "Under NO circumstances can we share it with you on here, because it's official", which is oftentimes ridiculous, like with the Queen For An Hour interview.
