not a bad approach in all honestly. how "political" this gets, what process used, and/or how they pick/choose the releases seems to be a sticky situation just waiting to happen. at least its some sort of filter that can be used from time to time.

I'm sure many could list a bunch of edits right now that aren't being blocked so... I think it could be a good thing for blatant samples, and price hikes on releases that could be purely based off a sample jack. good for them.

I don't this concerns just bootlegs as i recall seeing this before on the page of an official release. I guess a label/artist can block a release from the marketplace if he/she really wants to?

this would be interessting to know, an user wrote under the "TTJ" Label site:
Sooo glad to have secured all these gems into my collection. I suppose these are not sanctioned by TT, but the man has had little time to arrange reissues of his genius work, so I guess somebody else did. These series of unofficial pressings include many tracks which are officially unissued, and maybe never will be.
which would mean somebody can tell discogs and they check it?
