Default Is it ok to post sites selling bootleg tapes?

I noticed a post asking for help in finding a recording of one of Paul's recent concerts. I know of a site that has bootleg videos and CDs of the concerts for sale...my question is, would it be innappropriate to post a link to it? It's not my site, but I thought I'd ask since I know it's not exactly legal.

You probably can as long as you're not selling it at Beatlelinks. A bunch of the sites in the Bootleg part of the links page sell them. But don't take my word on it.

I guess you are right Harb, but we do refer to things like BaltCD.com and Ebay as well out here.

I think the site that Easternbird refers to is one on which I am on the mailing list and I saw an update this week with videos from various concerts from this year's tour. And they have much more. I have bought from them and it has been good for me. I am 100% sure the site has been mentioned before. http://www.beatlefans.com/hgi.htm

If it is not the same site as Easternbird means, at least you have this one.

I'm in agreement with Harb and FPSHOT. Let's let Jerry give the go-head nod first.

Wouldn't it be better to let Jerry answer the question?

As long as you don't sell bootlegs on here, you can mention or link to any site your heart desires. The "Bootlegs" category of the main site has tons of them.
