    Territory restrictions are in place to ensure that all interested parties have control of distribution within their territories - this does mean that some territories will miss out on certain releases. This must be frustrating for ppl and I do sympathise. In a dream world the label with the Australian rights will make the track available on Australian sites at the same time as the other label releases in other territories - however this is not common in practice. I have noticed a lot more worldwide deals being struck now - this is partly the influence of digital distribution but also due to the shrinking of the market in general and consequently labels need to be able to sell in all potential territories in order to recoup. There are several sites out there who aren't respecting these territory restrictions, technically this is in breach of contract a lot of the time.

    I'd be very surprised if Beatport or anybody else agrees to this. If they, their partners and their stakeholders thought it was OK, then they wouldn't have the territory restrictions in the first place, no?
    Just what I am thinking.

    SO that's basically what I have against it, and why I do believe this could harm the name of the DJTT community.

    The only point worth making here is that if Beatport read thread this they will jump down DJTTs throat.

    Leave the morality, legality out of it, cus it only ends in an argument about what IS and what SHOULD be illegal. Fact is that it breaks Beatports rules and it would be solely DJTTs problem.

    I dont want this forum getting into bother cus i like it here.

    If peeps wanna do this they should take it off the forum.


    Jus sayin' ... i dont care either way cus i dont buy off Beatport.
