On October 3, 2005, we received permission for additional Vince Welnick performances of Vince Welnick and Friends (prefix vwf). This general section can now accomodate various Vince projects including the earlier Missing Man Formation (prefix mmf). There is a separate section here for Gent Treadly (prefix gtreadly) shows as well.
Subject: [etree] Vince Welnick & Friends
Hi, my name is Doug Hagman and I am in the band Vince Welnick & Friends http://www.vincewelnick.com . Let this be notice that any and all shows by this band are fine to upload onto the archive in any and all formats including all audio and video.
On January 21, 2003, Vince Welnick, via his messageboard, gave permission to Dave Winkler for shows to be hosted at the Archive:
I would love to be a part of the archives as I would love to play with those other guys. Who knows? Meanwhile I'll keep playing the music and hope you keep listening. Love always Vince
The Grateful Dead statement presumably applies:
STATEMENT TO MP3 SITE OPERATORS
The Grateful Dead and our managing organizations have long encouraged the purely non-commercial exchange of music taped at our concerts and those of our individual members. That a new medium of distribution has arisen - digital audio files being traded over the Internet - does not change our policy in this regard. Our stipulations regarding digital distribution are merely extensions of those long-standing principles and they are as follow:
No commercial gain may be sought by websites offering digital files of our music, whether through advertising, exploiting databases compiled from their traffic, or any other means.
All participants in such digital exchange acknowledge and respect the copyrights of the performers, writers and publishers of the music.
This notice should be clearly posted on all sites engaged in this activity.
We reserve the ability to withdraw our sanction of non-commercial digital music should circumstances arise that compromise our ability to protect and steward the integrity of our work.
