Changing technologies have had a great impact on the recording, distribution, and varying profitability of the underground industry. The copyrights for the song and the right to authorize recordings often reside with the artist, according to several international copyright treaties. The recording, trading and sale of bootlegs continues to thrive, however, even as artists and record companies attempt to provide "authorized" alternatives to satisfy the demand.

Polite Notice To Numan Site Authors.
I appreciate the effort that you all put into your sites, I really do. BUT. Anyone that thinks putting entire songs on-line in near CD quality MP3 format is helping my career in any way is sadly mistaken. Lesser quality samples are still illegal but infinitely more acceptable to me. Let's be honest, I'm hardly a big seller am I, and so giving my songs away is a bizarre way of trying to help. In the future anyone putting up MP3 files of entire Numan songs (clips of tracks don't bother me) will be removed from this page. I have no wish to get heavy, I will not inform the various authorities in any country, but I'm buggered if I'm going to link to people that I genuinely believe are harming me.
Whether you agree with me or not, giving my music away is NOT your decision to make!
