Just a simple rule:NO live recording, regardless of quality or format of distribution, is to be exploited commercially by anyone in any way at any time. In other words, you are completely free to download and trade recordings (via tape, CD, or digital file transfer) or even give them away but I do not want to see them offered for sale (i.e. eBay) at any price, ok? . Sheryl is pro-taping, but not for profit.
Thanks and happy listening :-)
A question for Sheryl: what do you think about people downloading or trading rare and bootleg songs of yours?
I don't really care if people download rare and bootleg songs because those performances were given to a group of people that were there on that night and if they had any spirit about them and if it's right in the cosmos for those songs to go out and have more life, then I'm okay with that.
I'm one of a dying breed who goes out and tours all the time. Labels don't spend money to send people out to play before they become famous, but we did do that so the fans we have are word of mouth fans who have been travelling around with us for years and they buy the albums. But they are also the ones who go out and get the bootlegs. I don't discourage bootlegging, I like playing live. I don't think it hurts my album sales at all if there are bootlegs out there. Who cares?
