Wow! So what constitutes a licensed file? 99% of what I downld are concert files that are unavailable on commercial cd's. I already have (previously bought) all of the main bands albums I'm after, including dvd's. So how are concert songs recorded unofficially considered in regards to licensing? That's a bit of a grey area for me at the moment. Since the music companies don't possess those particular recordings, what is their status?
