Title: Obtaining Older PoDLBN Podcast shows
Post by: peccles on June 15, 2009, 12:17:35 am
I discovered DLBN podcasts early this year.  Hence, there are lots of previous shows I don't have.  Is there anyway to obtain some of them?  Some ideas I have are sending DVD-R blanks plus return post paid shipping envelope to a show owner to send to me.  Then I would offer to do the same for say 5 other people who wanted the shows with the implicit agreement they will do the same for 5 others and so on.  Another idea would be to make bitorrents available for groups of older shows.   Maybe DLBN could provide DVDs of older shows for a nominal price that would help support the DLBN.  These are just some ideas and maybe other have some too.  Looking for feedback.

Thanks
Paul

Hi there!

We've thought about doing this in the past but are not able to do so due to legal concerns as this could be considered reselling music since the music itself is contained in the files.  Right now the only way to obtain older shows is for the host to air it again if he or she is absent.

Cheers,
