The webmaster is under massive threat by the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry). The allegation is violating the
copyrights of IFPI members by displaying cover scans of the following 7" vinyl singles:
Of course, released in 1980, 1981and 1982 respectively, the records are deleted for long and are collectors items today.
At the time of purchase retailers insisted on the fact that a cover for a vinyl record is only the package but not part of the
record. It meant that a damaged cover couldn't be returned or changed, it was simply a worthless thing.
For now, it is worth enough to be a subject to rip off the record purchaser by the IFPI and it's member record companies.
