Thumbs down Van Morrison - Why banned?!

Hey,

Just read the rule that is like 10 years old about anything related to Van Morrison is banned on this site. Isn't it time to get rid of this outdated rule?
Around that time (10) years ago some lawyer claiming to work for The Man went crazy-mode and threatened everyone uploading van boots. Seriously, no other serious trading site no longer holds on to this rule.

I've almost got all known van boots (67-99) if anyone is interested. I'm glad dimeadozen exists.

Re: Van Morrison - Why banned?!

I'd like to trade some Van boots, got a few... With all due respect to the authorities. OTOH don't want us all getting into trouble,

or even WORSE, attracting attention.

Re: Van Morrison - Why banned?!

ousterhout seems to be a really reasonable person, I agree.

It seems that the officials or lawyers or whoever are largely hit-and miss. Mat Brewster has had to cancel downloads of some of the earlier files, but recently seem uncontested.

Contact his people and get an official document or something that says it's ok. Otherwise pay the legal bill to take a case to court to set precedent. TTD isn't going to take a chance and get shut down over it.

Re: Van Morrison - Why banned?!

If Dime can allow VM shows I can't imagine why TTD doesn't lift the ban.

Wait. Did you just say that it's allowed to upload Van Morrison boots again?

Re: Van Morrison - Why banned?!

Brewster from earlier (2011 or 2012?) blog:

"For ages, Van Morrison had the Web Sheriff on the payroll confounding bootlegers of all stripes. Folks like Van and others hire the Sheriff to rid the online world of illegal copies of their art. I don't know if it was Van himself, or his management that did the hiring and I likewise don't know if the initial intent was to take down unofficially released recordings as well, but that is exactly what happened. The Sheriff is a bit of a maniac and for years it was very difficult to find copies of Van Morrison concerts online. I once even had some cover art for Van bootlegs taken down by the Sheriff for no apparent reason.

"A few weeks ago the Sheriff got fired by Van (though I am sad to say he has since been hired by Bob Dylan) and bootlegs are now bountiful. I've since downloaded/traded for dozens of Morrison bootlegs and nearly everyday am getting more. Like a lot of artists who've been performing for decades the quality of the boots range from pristine to piss poor,but they are almost always interesting."

So, fingers crossed...

Rod.
