Legal Issues

Some "concerns" have an irrational fear of all things MP3 - just the mere mention makes them sweat, veins stand out on their foreheads and visions of suing copyright lawyers dance before them. But don't panic because I have done the hard work for you, contacted the copyright holder and...

I have official permission to use the interviews from the Fly On The Wall promotional CD and associated Mosquitos press releases from Stan Ridgway himself (via webmaster Clark Price) at the official Stan Ridgway Dis-Info site.

Here is a copy of the email that I received granting me this permission:
