What are legit reasons to ban the sale of music?
« on: May 08, 2019, 01:00:21 AM »
I was window shopping on Discogs. It is an general encyclopedia of records, tapes, and CDs. If you wanted to know a particular album, it would show that album from the US, the UK, and many other countries in the world. It also has links to people selling that particular media.

While trying to figure out the version I am window shopping for, I came across one that is banned on Discogs site. Why would an out of print record be banned?
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

What record was banned? I used that site numerous times yet never saw such a thing on there. Perhaps there is something about the product that the Discogs owners found detestable or obscene and didn't want the recording displayed on their webpage

I don't remember. It was some record or CD of something l found.

That opens up a new cap of worms now. Who decides what is detestable or obscene when it comes to e-commerce?

It might've just been a legal issue.

The site could be operated by a single individual so really, its up to him to decide what is unfit for his network.

Honestly, there are only so many notes.

I feel it absurd, generally, when Pop Music entertainers complain their music has been stolen.

Even if Music Copyrights are legit (which I generally doubt), the protection should last no longer than a decade.

After all, Patents for products that actually cost $$$$$$$$ to engineer and manufacture, and actually improve or even save lives, are limited to a mere eighteen years !

None!
The sale of music should be open-market!
