As some of you know, recently, Discogs started blocking for sale bootlegs and known counterfeit/pirated releases. I understand why they might want to do that so this isn't about why they might be blocking something like that. However, in the various threads about this on the Discogs forums, I've come across some head scratches. For example, they've blocked ALL for sale copies of Johnny Winter's Guitar Slinger on Alligator records. Some are saying things like, it could be down to a royalty dispute between the label and an artist/song writer/etc But this makes no sense to me as any dispute would be between the label and the artist and if Discogs has to block it for legal reasons wouldn't eBay have to worry about this too? It would be like everyone having to suspend sales of any release as soon as their's contention about copyrights. Does anyone know if there's a story behind this Johnny Winter release, or, any more details as to what is going over at Discogs? So far Discogs has not said much at all regarding their blocking in general.
