    Well, downloading everything rare,live and all the material I need from Van Halen before
    Napster is shut down completely and from what reports made recently, that could happen by the weekend! Once again, thanks again to those ASSHOLES in METALISHIT!!!
    Seems they hate more than just Napster these days...what goes around comes around and I hope LARS ends up in a alley way begging for pennies in the future! Doubt it, but would love to see it happen!

    Shouldn't affect the boots, since there is no official copyright on them.

    Just recorded music that's on an album will be zapped, I believe.

    Official copyright? Live performances are copyrighted - it's (technically) illegal to distribute bootlegs
    http://www.grayzone.com/faqindex.htm

    Whether this affects Napster is a different matter - I suspect they will (as you say) only concentrate on officially released stuff. But pretty much all music is copyrighted as I understand it. One exception is if a band explicitly allows taping which VH doesn't.

    illegal..when you make a buck doing it.
    trading is in the gray zone/safe zone.

    Definitely gray zone. Trading is illegal but in the same way as driving 59 in a 55 zone is illegal. Not worth anyone's time prosecuting or even doing anything about.

    At this point I think it is in the best intrest of VH to let us get all the boots and live preformances as we want! I mean over the course of 16 months with nothing new many people have turned to the boots as a form of new VH material. Honestly many die hard VH fans have had the boots for years but for those who are in the middle to say, they might not have every heard this type of thing. Personally I would be on the net and see all of these VH boot listings but was never able to listen to them because my computer at home was to slow to download. When I came to college and got hooked into their T1 connection I went postal at napster and downloaded everything in sight that pretained to Van Halen live preformances and bootlegs. This is what I listened to and stil do listen to as a form of so called "New" VH tunes. Think of it this way, for those of us who weren't old enough to remember old VH albums but eventually around the 90's started to take music more seriouslly and bought FUCK and really dug it what was the first thing you wanted to do? Go get more no doubt about it! So we ran out to the store and saw all this old stuff from the late 70's and 80's and were like, wow! So technically this music that had been around for 10 plus years was new to us just like boots are new the first time you hear them. So am I just ramblin' or what? I hope not and I hope to god that others will take note and realize this oint just as I have. Long live the mighty Van Halen and until the new album is out make your own "NEW" music!

    I agree raven. The "new" bootlegs we get are like bringing back the old days to get us hyped for the new days. But knowing life's luck, Napster will shut down completely. No matter to me though. I got kicked off MONTHS ago.
