1.  You will note that the song I reposted (isn't that a fencing term? ;>)
was originally posted somewhere else, by someone else.  If you're correct,
they're wrong too.

2.  Unless I've been badly misled and deceived, reposting material on a
mailing list doesn't constitute violation of copyright, especially if the
reposting isn't for profit.

3.  If we don't know about the song, how the heck can anybody make any money
off of it?
