Thread Name: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
Hmmm Sandya and Caroline...doing the songs that Dylan ripped of and claimed as his own..I know a title for the album...."FIDELS". How's that?

Copyright shmopyright...if folk singers worried about copyright, and it was enforced, we'd all be in debtors gaol by now. But acknowledging a source is far more important than a legal title to a piece of music or song. But maybe copyrighting a traditional song is one way to preserve it in these modern times, then we would not lose our heritage in such a horrible fashion.
