It would be a great favor and much appreciated.? M.
I have some CD's of my own but having noticed the care
in which most Milongas are put together, there must be
oodles of great CD collections out there...I'd love to have
a few.? thks

You probably already know these, but just in case you don't:

zivals.com has large selection of CDs for sale and is a reliable shipper.
www.todotango.com has huge selection of free music available for listening on line and/or for downloading.

Thanks for this. I must admit I'm a total duffer when it comes to computers
but even I managed to download the '70 Most Danced Tangos'

Is this legal? I mean, I've spent a small fortune buying CDs on-line and now
I get 70 great tracks for free. Just doesn't seem right.

Is it legal? Probably not, though I'm not sure what the copyright
expiry laws are in Argentina. Throughout much of the world, the current
law for the copyright on the composition is life of the artist plus 70
years, which would make it very likely to still be current for most
Tango music. The copyright on the performance, on the other hand, may be
expired for recordings from the early 50's and before, depending on
whether Argentina uses US- or UK-style copyright on music performances.

Can any of our Argentinian regulars find out what Argentina's copyright
law currently says?

Is it immoral? That's a much tougher question. Partly, for me, it comes
down to a question of where the money for those CDs you bought goes. How
many surviving composers and performing artists are there, and are they
actually getting the royalties? Or have their rights been long since
bought up by an international record label?

And then of course, there is the question of whether copyright is a fair
remuneration system at all.
