Subject: RE: Origins: Trad. Songs: Trad. or Copyrighted?
I find something odious about taking a traditional song and NOT saying it's traditional. I have always had an appreciation for folks who do an arrangement and take credit for it, but also state that it is based on a traditional melody/lyrics. You use someone's arrangement and they deserve the credit for the arrangement, not the song itself.
