I guess I misunderstood somewhere along the way and I thought that pfony was Mr. Oswald's company which was working for one of the big record companies. Was there anyone actually attempting to get the rights to other songs or was this all pfony info also. Was/Is pfony just a 'name'. Can pfony actually produce a document prooving that any artist actually said it was ok to use their work for the appropriate fee? That would be interesting if some artists just started sending in legal agreements that it was ok to use their stuff.

I'm questioning how I too would react, i liked the story that they were trying to work with the 'man' but then realized it was impracticle. (maybe if i was aware of this whole senario when it was playing out i too would have been questioning their decision to work with the 'record industry' in the beginning) so they took their wares elsewhere. but if it turned out that they never really tried. whatever. the stuff still sounds "good".
