What a terrific opportunity for some of you folks to put your money where your mouth is.


Jameskg and dcbullet could represent the entire bootlegging industry via their staff positions at TTD, because you can be goddam motherfucking sure that AEG Live's team of attorneys won't make any distinction between "free distribution" and "selling for a profit" in a court of law; the challenge of making the distinction will fall squarely on the defendants shoulders.


Best of luck to James and Billy-Bob!
based on this part

I interpret the lawsuit to only have bearing on merchandise like t-shirts etc. that might name the festival not recordings made at the fest

yes, and we always cease and desist when asked - by the owner of the performance - you know, like the BAND or it's management. It's happened a few times and is no big deal.
We have never allowed trading of bands that request not to be traded here. It is their music.
