I disagree with this, really.  I want the recordings, especially of the
things that are difficult to obtain, to be freely reproducible, modifiable
(compilations, mixes, etc) and redistributable.  Very few performers make
much money from their recorded works.  Most of it comes from performance,
which is why we still call them "performers", I guess.

I agree with your other comments about the source forms, though.
