With Success Comes A Price

I received my first notice from a copyright holder to remove a post. King Crimson to be exact. It has me a little scared. I had assumed I was safe posting bootlegs. Now, maybe not. I removed the post. What do I do now? Shut down the blog? Try to take it private again? I may have a way, but it may crap out like the last time. Your thoughts? Insights? Ideas? Send me an email at blind-pig@live.com or leave a comment under any post.

I Be Banned

"This email is to inform you that you have been banned from the Trader's Den. You have converted lossless files to MP3 violating the Terms Of Service."

Ohhh, the purity.... Ohhh the horror.... I am one of the unclean.

What are they worried about? Why is it such a big deal to convert some live shows to Mp3 format? Excuse my inexperience, ive only been doing this for a few months, but it seems to me that there are just alot of assholes out there with nothing better to do than to fuck with other people for doing EXACTLY what they are doing ! Lets all share. Torrent, Mp3,Whatever!
its Music damn it! Stop Fucking around With it, or im gonna cry !
Love- johnnylove

"F" the man!
I convert the files, too. Lossless files take too much space and won't play on my iPod.

Keep up the good work.

Some of us can't afford multi-terabyte drives...that's why we convert!

I wonder how many of those clowns can tell the difference between a .wav file and a 320 kbps .mp3.

My guess is zero.

Thanks for converting! Flac is a pain for simple folks like me.

The "do not convert" people have apparently not heard of ipods.
See if you can get instructions over what speaker I'm allowed to listen to LOSSLESS files with. I might be breaking that rule to.

Yeah, I'm pretty sick of getting flak (ha!)from the FLAC-Nazis, too. LOSSY LOVERS UNITE!

Oh dear...gee how will we ever get the music that the hoarders hang onto...oh yeah I forgot....from every other f'n download site out there.
TD seem to forget that that there are more than just them out and about sharing the tunes. Sooner or later it ends up in a format we CAN ALL USE on someone else's site.
Keep rockin' my man...fight the power!

I get so sick of these torrent snobs telling me how I can and can't listen to and share music. What a bunch of elitist pricks. Sorry, I don't have 12 hours to wait for a download that I can barely tell the difference in quality. And sorry, I don't spend all my allowance mommy gives me on more memory so I can store them. Oh my god what a bunch of sissies they all are. TT YOU RULE!!
