Good post Uke, Henry Kissinger couldn't have put it better.

Traditional singers and musicians certainly did get short shrift (try saying that with your teeth out) by contempory standards but probably not in era under discussion here. Intellectual property rights and performers' rights would certainly have to be respected today and rightly so. You say that you are certain that Rod Stradlings' intentions are good. Perhaps that generosity should be extended to include Peter Kennedys'contribution as a pioneer in the ethical climate that prevailed during his work as a collector?
