Thanks for weighing in, Kevin. Especially because it shows how many people before and after us worked to utilize the archives in ways relevant to the times they were there, but faced similar issues. Interesting questions you present, and there may be easy answers to those you and I posed, but they are worth asking. Interesting point of the lack of enforcement on licensing. I think that shows the power of the relationship JPC had to the community. It was an honor to have your work in a JPC mag or production. Nobody was going to sue because they used your music for three years when they only had the rights for two.
