    Right, bootlegs... i love em when they are done right, but how do artists/labels avoid copywrite issues? Is it through anonimity and a wall of silence or do they just hope no one from a big label listens to dnb? :D

    always wondered?

    They are released under a pseudonym or as Unknown Artist.

    They aren't released on labels so it is impossible to prosecute anyone.

    Ahh.. i did notice alot of strange names or anonymity on them... so i was correct about that bit

    what about getting the vinyls pressed (i appreciate bootlegs on digital must be much easier!), ie, can't the bootleggin be traced back to the pressing house... and what about the distributers too... they must know where/who they came from?

    this is what i meant by wall of silence, does no one snitch basicly?

    marky comes round with a flick knife and has their balls on a platter before they can say "he did it"

    usually only realease about 200 copies as well so it's very limited and doesn't get much recognition.... as such.
