First of all Happy New Year - we didn't speak for a long time ;)
As you may noticed already almost all links from my posts for the last months were removed from rapidshare. The similar situation on some of our friends blogs as well. I'm curious to understand the nature of these deletions. I must admit that in the past I did uploads of albums currently available & reissued - so the copyright owners had all the rights to remove the links infringing their copyright. Guilty. But for me the main advantage of blogging was to share & find rare out of print or never legally reissued material. Please tell me whose rights I infringed posting:
Nadavati - Le Vent De L'esprit Souffle Ou Il Veut (1973)
Avalanche - Perseverence Kills Our Game (1979)
The Falcons - Fever (1970)
Sourdeline - La Reine Blanche (1976)
Tarentule - Same (1977)
Tanzbar - Missethaten (1979)
Tanzbar - Tanzbar (1978)
Crossbreeze - Same (1974)
Edelweiss - En El Principio (1973)
Chalibaude - Les Noces Du Papillon (1976)
Madrigal - School Of Time (1977)
P.P. Zahl - Alle Turen Offen (1978)
John Bassman Group - Filthy Sky (1970) & others? None of these albums are currently available neither been legally reissued.
Funny, this situation forced me into blogging again ;) I'll thoroughly check all my posts from the beginning & will re-up only oop or never legally reissued albums. For all others I'll put the link to the reissue labels .
The other question is why nobody ever approach me to remove this or that link? I got the impression that our old friend deleter had returned & using all this situation around ProgRock Records & ProgNotFrog... ;)
Looking forward for your comments on this matter. And I'm especially waiting for the person putting complaints on rapidshare to explain his motivations.
P.S.: Comment here on the albums you would like to see re-upped in the first turn (if the album not available you'll receive the link)
