Bootlegs, what to do?there are wonderful live shows you have recorded and those record labels are still there, do you know that they even publicize all on the net?do they pay your copyrights?

Bootlegs have always been around and have usually been beneficial in promoting an artist. Bands are supposed to get paid by their publishers and recording labels. Now, there is so much free copying so broadly and quickly it is very difficult for artists to get paid at all. It is up to the public/the fans to pay for product. If you don't understand how musicians earn money you can't say you don't need to pay. PAY FOR YOUR MUSIC ... every little bit counts.
