I am guilty as I already stated.
Here is an article about posting concert videos on YouTube.
We are lucky that so many videos of Leonard's concerts exist on YouTube.

Personally, I feel that it only compliments the artist and also gives them more visibility and perhaps sells more tickets to the concerts.
Our videos are not professional and the sound is not the best so I would think if someone liked the songs they would buy them to get the best quality of sound.

YouTube runs a reform school for copyright violations ... iolations/

I'm pretty sure I've tipped at least one or two people on Twitter over onto the "yes go to the concert" side after tweeting them a link to one (or more) of Leonard's live performances.

Well that's the thing - some of the performances captured are pretty special. If someone has a good camera, and a good technique (like our Mr Noonan) then it's not much inferior to a recorded show, and has an immediacy which can be very atmospheric.
I'm chained to the old masquerade...
