I only met Marshall a couple of times, and was wary of his down-home Southern boy style.
I had heard stories that involved hanging people out of hotel windows at a Miami DJ convention, and had noticed how many licences seemed to flow between him and Charly Records, whose rights to various catalogues have been open to question.
I hope it all works out for Betty Harris and that her case leads to the untangling of many other knotty threads that have denied royalty payments to legitimate recipients.

Adam Blake wrote:The difference as I understand it is this:
Bootlegging is making available material that would not otherwise be made available - without any authorization whatsoever from artists, producers or record labels.
Piracy is copying already available material and selling it without making any payments to the copyright holders.
Adam Blake wrote:From the LEGAL perspective there is no distinction, but from the artistic perpective there is a big distinction between someone who just rips off an artist and a record label by copying their products without paying for them - and someone who makes available material that has never been and is unlikely to be officially released. To a fan, the first is nothing but a pest, where the second is providing an invaluable service.
