this is true... many bands allow legal trading/sharing of live
recordings of their shows, unless a produced and sold version of said
concert is on the market by the band... trade your live copy, not
theirs, buy theirs. Always buy studio produced albums. If a band
allows free trade of live recordings, take advantage of that and enjoy
the music! just buy the studio albums... or song by song now that you
can do that... since some complain that they have to buy an entire
album for a single song. :)
... now that I've posted twice to a degenerating thread of music ethics... :p

I'm as much against copyright infringement as everyone
