I'm totally in agreeance here with Cheryl, and I'm glad she's brought this 
up because it is something that I too have wanted to bring up.  She makes an 
extremely good point and I too don't appreciate fans that sell material that 
isn't theirs.  If you want to spend the blood and guts that musicians put 
into writing, recording, promoting, and touring, then fine, you can make 
money through the industry no problem.  But if you are selling another 
person's work which they spent not only hours producing, but also years 
establishing a name for themselves, it is illegal...simple as that.  Not 
only is it bad for the artist, but it is bad for the music industry in 
general.  I am currently involved somewhat in the music industry, and once 
I'm done with college I'd like to know that there are jobs still available 
for me...and that they haven't all been wiped out because of people 
pirating.  That's just my two cents on the subject.  Thanks Cheryl for 
stepping out and bringing up this subject!

hey all -

I've been putting this off for a long time now, but it's time to say 
something.  as we all know, the Oils don't have a problem with trading 
bootlegs, but they do have a problem with people who make a profit from 
them.  what makes it worse, is that not only is this person a fan, but is a 
member of the list.  I know for a fact that she ripped off someone $40 for 
at least 2 shows each, and now has 2 more shows for sale starting at $19.  
let me just say for someone who pulls this kind of shit, you have a lot of 
nerve signing up on the OilsLive tree as a leaf.

happy trading.
