Boster, Bob [rumori] copyright - the last defense of 13 yr old girls

I know it seems self-evident to us but, despite the pathos of this
message, it sort of makes me wonder if someone would write up a little
diatribe about the fact that this project isn't intended to "steal" any of Beck's hard-earned cash, that none of us do this for money, and maybe
a brief primer on the history of appropriation as art (rather than as
Vanilla Ice seeking the quick buck.) Seems like all this is on the
detritus page, but maybe a one screen overview associated with the
DeconBeck stuff to outline the associated ideas might be helpful.

Of course, I don't have time to write such a document (I don't even have
time to write up my track listing notes), and it probably ought to come
from "Philo" anyway. Just a thought. Any interest anyone?
