Most of my focus is on sharing rips of commercial bootlegs that I, *personally*, own… Often, I admit, I am tempted to say, that I am *only* going to share such bootlegs (those I actually own). But, as soon as I think that, I realize that there are bootlegs that I would still like to share here, that I’ve downloaded from other sites.
You will always be able to distinguish between bootlegs which I own, vs. ones where I am reposting. First, bootlegs are I own are categorized as part of “My Personal Collection”. Second, bootlegs which I own include the text ‘Shared by “J.B.” / doom43 / dance1102 on https://PurpleHippies.com‘ in the post.
Equally, I am not really fussed about whether someone else has already shared the bootlegs that I own. If I am sharing something categorized as part of “My Personal Collection”, it is in fact, a fresh rip&scan from a bootleg I actually own. Where someone else has already shared such bootlegs, my post may simply be a duplicate of what is available elsewhere, or perhaps an “upgrade” of artwork, for a bootleg available elsewhere. (But, to reiterate, anything categorized as part of “My Personal Collection” is a fresh rip from CDs which I own.)
[I guess I should also state that I have not edited the bootlegs I am sharing in any way.]
Lastly, I would like to state (again), my “policy” on sharing my bootlegs on other sites: you are *absolutely* welcome to do so. I don’t place any requirements on sharing my sources elesewhere. It is nice if you preserve the information on lineage (and credit my site)–but is certainly not “required”.
