Re: Sorry for absence

Can't decide between Lady Chatterley’s Lover and The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes...

I do have 3 solos going at LV though... :oops: Better finish those first.

Re: Solo [ENGLISH] The Prophet by Khalil Gibran-neb

I have redone the summary - formatted with HTML for Wordpress. I have explained the copyright/licence situation in the summary. Is this acceptable? Feel free to change it, if not. I have also posted my long-drafted blog post about Legamus: http://golding.wordpress.com/2011/10/19/copyright-and-an-exc...

Sorry for absence

I am sorry I have been away so long. You probably all know why, but hopefully our problems elsewhere will soon be resolved and I can get back to doing what I like best - recording.

I even have a draft post ready in my blog all about Legamus. :D

And I will record the proper disclaimer today. I am sorry, everybody. Life elsewhere took over, as you know.

Re: How to catalogue

re-encodes in 64 kbps I'd make sure to test this thoroughly for quality issues. We found when submitting samples to publishers at 64 kbps that the Audacity LAME encoding from a 44 KHz recording to 64 kbps MP3 produced poor audio quality. I got around it by recording the samples at 22 KHz sample rat...

Re: Disclaimer

With regard to Ruth's suggested disclaimer, I find it interesting that the Librivox disclaimer contains no warning that an audiobook may not be in the public domain in a country outside the US. After all, if, in Australia, I listened to a Librivox recording of a Robert Frost poem (none of which, al...

Re: How to catalogue

Mine isn't ready yet. It hasn't got the final disclaimer on it and everything that should be in the tags. That was just a temporary one for PL. I will fix those things and the volume before uploading the final versions.

Re: Solo [ENGLISH] The Prophet by Khalil Gibran-neb

They do have a disclaimer, but because I figured I shouldn't upload any file in the open without one. It isn't the final one.

Thank you, Leni. :)

Re: Disclaimer

But I find it not a little sarcastic that I have just this afternoon listened, in one of the very first books by legamus, to your voice saying: You often say, "I would give, but only to the deserving." The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture. Hah! Put firmly in my place...

Re: File hosting, distribution and storage

Mediafire has its servers in the USA though, doesn't it? We have to use European servers (or at least some 'death+70-or-less' country), and you will have to use a server in some 'death+50' country, or your files will be hosted in a location where the content is still under copyright.

Re: Disclaimer

Ah, you are still young and idealistic, Leni. I am old and cynical, though I never wanted to be either. :lol: I find I do not wish to encourage the modern idea of making money out of other people's work, while doing little or nothing yourself.

You won't need to back up mine - I keep many back-ups. ;)

Sorry to hear about your husband's job. :( It is a worrying time for everyone in this economic downturn.

Re: Uploading to Free.fr

When you click on the download link, you don't see many ads but you still have to click on the (small) link Télécharger ce fichier. But if you add the file name to the link, you get an immediate download without having to click any further link. e.g. http://dl.free.fr/gxkEdx1cJ/prophet_1_gibran.mp3...

Plus we have a big sign on the catalog page that says that the text of the recording is still under copyright in the US and all countries where copyright is longer that 70 years after the death of the author.
