I reapeat for the hard of hearing.

"Nick Jones well I sure no one can put into words the loss of his talents have been to Folk Music. The Smashing his Albums in a well know London record store has noting to do with making Nick Jones and his music available has it. I would have thought a positive step to help Nick Jones would be to organize fundraisers for Nick or if he is not in need of the Money. To help all those other people and their cares that suffer from a traumatic brain injury."

What effect will it have to go round smashing Nick Jones Albums because of Ethics? The record shop makes a profit on the sale and hopefully pay's their bill. I don't know how this works do they pay the record company the royalties or do they pay direct to, not sure about this help, is it MRIPS or some one. I expect all these record producers on here will know. Then that monies are distributed to whom ever is legally entitled to it. After the Taxman has got a slice of it naturally. I don't want to upset any tax collectors again do I?

All I can see it doing is putting the record stores off buying Folk Albums in a shrinking market for them. So who is supressing the release of Folk Albums.
