A bootleg recording is an audio and/or video recording of a
performance that was not officially released by the artist, or
under other legal authority. The process of making and distributing
such recordings is known as bootlegging. A great many such
recordings are simply copied and traded among fans of the artist
without financial exchange, but some bootleggers are able to sell
these rarities for profit, sometimes by adding professional-quality
sound engineering and packaging to the raw material. Bootlegs can
consist of recordings of live performances, or material created in
private or professional recording sessions. 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.
