Barely Legal

Today's Globe features this story, Wry Fidelity, about Ford Shacklett and his Kiddie Records Weekly website which:
...once a week for the duration of 2005 will present free MP3 downloads of such forgotten musical story records from the 1940s and `50s
Interesting.

But then it goes on to quote Ford about the legality of what he is doing:
Is he worried about Disney, RCA, or Capitol cracking down on his operation? "I understand sharing online music is illegal," he hedged. "But I would try to defend myself by pointing out how sites like this are keeping the memory of these recordings alive and exposing new generations to them."
It's a fun site and all, but it's still illegal.
