Free Cathedrals Music and video. What thuh …?
Via Kyle Boreing, a link to a blog by “Bro. Gary,” who has posted a free downloadable recording of an old Cathedrals table project from early in Danny Funderburke’s tenure with the group. Kyle has all the 411 on why this project matters. Check it out.
For my part, though, I’m still wondering how exactly it is that this “Bro. Gary” is getting away with offering free downloads of old copyrighted Cats stuff (he’s also offering the entire “Can He, Could He, Would He” video in digital Mpeg-4 format). Does this guy own the rights? (No.) And if doesn’t, surely it can’t be that no one (read: Todd Payne, who mostly likely holds the copyrights to these items) cares about this kinda thing getting downloaded for free? Or am I missing something? What on earth can “Bro. Gary” possibly mean by urging us to “get it while it lasts” because “the file will not be here for long”?
Full disclosure: I confess I downloaded Distinctively pronto (though this really is one of those cases where pirating could be prevented by simply making the music easier to buy than “borrow” … certainly iTunes is well worth the $.99 a tune to avoid having to download (and wait), then unzip and import the songs individually into my player). So I’m not casting stones here. Just looking out of my glass house and wondering.Email this Post
