Re: [RedHotJazz] The End Of The Red Hot Jazz Archive?
- Nope to wouldn't. It's still broadcasting copyrighted music. Then the bigger
issue that the archive is there to educate and if you limit access, you
basically kill the site anyway.

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".
