The End Of The Red Hot Jazz Archive?
- I decided not to take part in the 'Day of Silence' for US web radio but
I have serious concerns about continuing with hosting the Red Hot Jazz
Archive after July 15th of this year.
What's your opinion folks? Any lawyers out there? Does anyone outside of
the USA want to take over the hosting of the site?
If you don't know what I'm talking about here are some news articles:
It's a hard decision for me. The Red Hot Jazz Archive has been on the
Internet for over 11 years.

That seems very logical, but my concern is : what if... the fact that
http://redhotjazz.com belongs to Scott means that he is responsible for the
content, as an American citizen, whatever the location of the site's files?
I suspect that there won't be any need to transfer them anyway (Neal's reply
and the notion of "weighing risks" seem to me quite satisfactory, all the
more so when I think of some websites which do not only make pre-war
material available, but also have nerves to *sell* pre-1930 sound files for
which they cannot claim any kind of rights!!!) but I've still asked the
question about what defines a website's "nationality", and expect a bunch of
replies from different groups. Even useless efforts in order to save
redhotjazz won't be actually "wasted".
