Hi tom.

Hmmm, I assumed that once a sound library was perchiced by an individual it was practically there's to use.

I find myself continually amazed at how restrictive copywrite law is. I've mentioned myself how it has practically stopped people in England getting hold of books for a considderable time, but if a philanthropic action like that I proposed essentially ment for the purposes of sharing would be considdered a breach of law, I find that practically insane!

It seems that laws intended simply to insure an individuals' right to recieve creddit for his/her own creative work have, ---- unsurprisingly given the general nastiness of unregulated capitalism, morphed into just another tool for extracting the maximal amount of prophit from any enterprise.

Getting back to my idea though, my thought was that all developers who wished to be involved club together as a group for this purpose, and the actual buying and administration of donations is done by a third party.

So, the sounds would be licensed to "the developement resources collective" (or whatever the heck we called it), who's members would included Thomas ward, Phil Vlasac, Che martin etc, but the actual buying of the license would be the responsability of the administrator, ---- whoever that would be.

i'd hope that would get around the evil capitalist evil.

Beware the grue!
