Re: It might be time to revisit Hot Tuna NAB status

Another interesting fact: I am friends with a local taper who is known as Big Daddy Buffalo. BDB is on friendly terms with Hot Tuna. I've got pictures of him with Jorma and crew that are recent and ones that are clearly many years ago. Some are of them partying in BDB's house. Jorma is totally supportive of taping. He hangs out with the tapers, even plays songs they request him to play. Any publicly stated policy is not that of the band at all. Jorma is all for the free trade of his shows, on this or any other site
To enforce copyright laws is to prevent people from making peaceful use of the information they possess. If one has acquired the information legitimately it is a violation of freedom of speech to prevent one from using it, reproducing it, trading it. Information is a universal, existing in other people's minds and other people's property, and over these the originator has no legitimate sovereignty. Copyright laws extort from the public a reward enormously in excess of the labor measure of an entertainers' services, making them, in essence, discriminatory against anyone paid a single time for a job. The only way there will ever be balance is when we are either all paid ad infinitum for work we did years ago, or when they are not. Until then I will fight for the freedom of information by challenging copyright law every chance I get. Join the Pirate Party and help make a difference.
