Re: The End Of The Red Hot Jazz Archive?
- Scott. In no way should the RHJA be lost. It would be like throwing a
whole generation of hope and musical gifts away. I can see an awful lot
of people going to places like India ( which is a very high tech nation
indeed) to host websites. Hang in there and lets see what happens. My
own Trad. Jazz Radio is also under threat since the host Live365 are US

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".
