I am selling on ebay the original records of radio programs given to me by radio stations. These are 15-25 year old shows, with recognzable names.
There are over 2 dozen for sale at any time, and the price is usually less than $50.
The only prohibition on the mateiral itself is "must be destroyed after broadcast."
The copyright holder informed me that I am in violation and should pull the itme. Pulling the item puts me in breach of contract with bidders. How serious is this,and are they just making noise to protect their rights?
