From: Every Man (every.manATpressthebutton.com)
Date: Sat Dec 14 2002 - 17:44:29 PST

Please see his comments on the FCC regulations we are supposedly violating
by selling tapes.

(note: we change the price of our CD's based on the cost of supplies in any
given month...he happened to catch us doing it this week)

>The link to the order button is still active - although it is invisible

>Also, I see that you have changed the price from $5 to $2 per CD - I

>You are violating FCC policy which is a violation of station policy and as
>a member of Executive Staff I am raising my concern:
>You have archived 5 years of PTB broadcasts and are making them available
>in a commercial venture and you are not a nonprofit educational institution.
>It is my opinion that selling an off-air re-transmission is in violation
>of FCC policy as outlined in the 96th Congress, 1st session - Off-Air
>Taping for Educational Use. The report is from 1979 and is not on-line,

>This will be the last email you will receive from me on this matter you
>have my opinions and my legal justification for my concerns.
