Maver1ck writes "Seems things weren't as stange as they
appeared last week. The Grateful Dead will, under strict guidelines
prohibiting commercial use, still allow free MP3 downloads
of live performances taped by fans. They just won't allow banner ads, sales
of user data, sponsorship or any other "profit" from the
exchange. Law firm press release is at PR Newswire.
Still begs the question of paying for all that bandwidth..."
Is it wrong to pay S&H to have a friend mail you a tape?
Or to send him a couple bucks to cover a blank CD-R to have
him burn you a concert? Bandwidth is a bit more expensive
than postage though...
