Re: Can 'audio watermarks' be banned...?

I'm not a taper nor someone who does remasters. However, I probably speak for the majority of the live music collecting population when I say I download/trade music because I like the music; not because of who taped it or remastered it. There's a big difference between listening to music because I like Yes (and some anonymous internet person did a good job of cleaning it up) and downloading a recording because some anonymous internet person does a great job of cleaning up live recordings that happen to be Yes.

Bottom line; I choose to collect certain recordings because I like their music. I look for the best versions I can find. If that isn't you, it will be someone else. And my life won't change a bit. I'd prefer people keep their names off of recordings they had no hand in making.
May your shit come to life and kiss you on the face.
