Thread Name: Sale of DT intellectual property?
Subject: RE: Sale of DT intellectual property?
Hi, I agree with McGrath - the page is clearly the work of a dedicated lover of the music who clearly gives links to many sites and states that if he has infringed copyright he apologises and will remove the articles. He stresses people should be visiting the links.

As for selling a CD, I doubt whether he is going to make a fortune - it is a bit like the shareware collection CDs one can buy which basically just compile the sghareware stuff you find on the web and then, if you want the full version you will presumably buy. Indeed this could be seen as a free advert for DT.

The cost of 20 pounds sterling (which, comparing CD prices in Canada would convert to $20) would cover time/effort costs and certainly not be profiteering, in my opinion - it seems a far cry from bootlegging. As for being able to do it in 2-3 hours as someone said above, I would deem this impossble given the numbers involved.

It is interseting comparing this to the troubles o that DT has had with the other lawyers - they could now be snickering and saying that people in glass houses...
