Actually, Bob, that's exactly what The Iceman was suggesting.

Whoa Nelly. No one in a position to make the decision has suggested
SPAH break the law or even bend it. Everyone agrees it is wrong to
steal intellectual property. However, it's not that difficult and
likely won't be expensive for SPAH to "do it right."
SPAH is classified as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. That means we have an
education mission. It means we don't pay tqxes. It means we can
accept donations (hint-hint). It means we can probably negotiate
extremely no cost or low cost "rights" deals.
If SPAH were to get in the business of recording performances and
seminars at the convention under the Cohen-Bachman administration,
we would do it right.
