I suspect that GUEST, sB already knows that. He/she did after all write "publish and be damned".

I'm a great believer in copyright law in general but, like any truly moral person, I believe that what's important and what's right supersedes the law of the land. Ideally of course, the musicians that made all those locked-up Bulmer albums would now be distributing them themselves, throwing caution to the wind. (And, really, there's not much "caution" that would be involved: as pointed out above, who's gonna complain?)

I've always wanted to hear the "John & Sandra" album (by John Faulkner & Sandra Kerr). If anyone has a copy of it and is prepared to send me the MP3s, I'll gladly donate 15 to the charity of their choice.

I'd love to see all those albums "liberated" via Bandcamp or Soundcloud, or of course full official reissue. But the latter is not that likely to happen. Personally I think some laws are made to be broken.
