When you read this on the 8th of July, I am already far away. And I will not be back before the 8th of August. I still don’t know what to do with the copyright dilemma, that I mentioned earlier, and that I would like to mention again today:

“Several people told me recently that putting music up a website can get me into trouble. My first reaction was that this is nonsense: I don’t get any money for this blog, and I try to share only music that is unknown and/or never released or that is made by friends. But even that is said to be against certain laws. I have been thinking a lot about all this in the past few months.
Is there anybody who knows what laws there are, if what I do is really “illegal”, and what the consequences might be? I don’t like the idea at all.
During the next four weeks I will try to see what is wise. But if you can help me out by answering my questions, please do.
Have a nice time!
