I don't know either Mick, because I don't remember the request!

Unfortunately the request was deleted also, but I'm sure it said something like:

'while I wait for the archive release, does someone have an audience version'

at which point I uploaded the EV2 release for that date.

Maybe the mods thought I'd actually done the archive release, & not a boot, I don't know. I probably should have queried why the request was deleted & the mods comment at the time, as I try my best to keep to the rules, but what's done is done I guess....

Sorry, but that is  definitely a link to the Archives just by writing it down

but still it's a bootleg and should not matter if you link it to a recent archives release right? It might be a misunderstanding than from the mods. But I know DIME has this restriction very clear. As soon as something is released, you cannot upload any bootleg versions of the same show anymore. But never heard of that here. And if the rule would be: it is ok to request a bootleg which also has been officialy releases is OK as long as you don't refer to that release, sounds a bit akward to me honestly.

I understand that, but those are the rules and probably GL has their own reasons for that, it has everything to do with copyrights, we want to stay, right?

You could ask the Mods, it would be better for everyone to know everything

Of course as a newbie here I don't want to stir up the pot...but very confusing. In reality the person recording the concert owns the copyright to that particular recording, and of course the artist and label jointly own the performance and can prohibit private recordings....and if so much like a broadway musical any recording whatsoever would violate copyright...not sure what position Bruce has on this. Some artists encourage it. Obviously you want to pay for anything released and support the artist but aside from that most of these tapes for private consumption and not publicly posted fall into a fair use situation. Really curious to hear how this is handled so as to play by the rules here.

Thanks mickb, but it looks like there's an issue with some of the files in both links. It looks like some are still unencrypted.

I don't think they ever published anything. We asked at the beginning and they pretty much said they'd think about it with the non-official releases of official releases. What seems to be happening is if an archive release is mentioned it gets taken down even it the request is for a non-official release. There hasn't been a problem if the requests are just given by date with no other information included. I guess is someone was searching for "archive" the posts would come up and that could cause a problem for the site.

The mods are 100% right. When the official version of a show is released that performance and those versions of the songs in the setlist become coyrighted. The source of the bootleg recording is irrelevant. As for the semi-legit releases which flood Amazon etc then we know they are bootlegs, the mods know they are bootlegs, Bruce knows they are bootlegs but filehosts are as easy to con as Amazon and would probably take down an upload if challenged by people they perceive to own the copyright who in fact are simply a step up from the chancers who post links using cashback hosts on guitars101 but regularly raid here for content.
