Subject: RE: Composers 'stealing' folk themes
I don't see a difference, Don. It's the crediting/acknowledging that bothers me whoever.

And Peace, I'd suggest if I wrote "my song" and the tune was really say "the wild rover", I'd be laying some personal claim to it if I didn't credit it as trad. I suppose now "my tune" rather than "the peoples".
