So how do you stop unofficial releases of your material - you officially release it and then anybody sharing it on places like Youtube and Yeesh are then committing copyright infringements.

Technically, these were always copyright infringements. However, I don't think PF are intending to crack down on the trading circles; this is more about people wanting to profiteer from the end of mechanical copyright and not allowing to let these recordings fall into public domain so nobody can sell them on a for-profit CD.

The quality of these recordings is total crap. They are definitely bootleg material they should just burned the original recordings. Also shame on Pink Floyd and their management for not making these live recordings professionally. No one would even give a crap about the bootlegs had they released quality live performances.

I think it's just for copyright reasons.

Establish a copyright and then release it yourself - after all they are running out of income streams

Was this expected? They definitely sound like bootlegs and not proper soundboard recordings.

Yes, precisely. It was to establish a copyright, so that it would not fall into public domain, which would allow anyone to make a commercial CD (or something else, physical or digital) out of it. The interesting possibility is that we might get more of these each year, so stay tuned. \:D/

Man I really really hope so. A CD set of the 1974 Wembley tapes all in one place would be bloody wonderful for example, or some cleaned up In the Flesh stuff.

Cruel But Fair from 1975 would be nice with a little cleaning up. Decent quality with the likes of Raving and Drooling and Shine On as well as Dark Side in its entirety and ending with Echoes 8)

Not sure if anyone's noticed, but these live albums have just as mysteriously vanished.

No surprise there. The very first 50 years copyright release I came across was back in 2013 by The Beatles, called The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963. It was a hefty package of 59 tracks, many of them more live at the BBC selections, but the real treat were Beatles demos for two unreleased tracks ("Bad to me" and "I'm in Love"; both were given to other artists). Anyhow, it was available on iTunes for only 7 days, and then it disappeared forever. If there is more Pink Floyd like this (or anything else of interest), buy the download promptly, forget about streaming. The Beatles official social media actually announced the package back in 2013, and how long it would sell - in Pink Floyd's case, there was radio silence about it all.
