Some of the artists who contributed to that cartridge may not mind if their .sav data is circulated publicly / openly, but some might.

My opinion is that sharing it would ruin the value for the people who managed to kickstart Blip. Why devalue their support?

If anyone shares this .sav I will kill you and put your corpse up on the pirate bay.

Hi. I expressed an interest in backing up the EMS cart to Max Dolensky, and at some times I don't really think very much about how someone might feel about a thing like one backup to my own computer. On the other hand, I'd only go so far to learn from the backup and semi-publically discuss what I learned, and retain the valuability by restricting it to only every owner of the EMS cart in its life. Which is doing fine right now. I didn't want to seem like I was a potential seeder of this .sav if that was implied, inferred, or mislabelled.

For a small period of time in the past, YES!

Basically this. I've learned a lot through other peoples .sav's in the past, so naturally I wanted to check these out. If the artists are against it that's completely fine and understandable. It is their artistic property after all.

e.s.c. has. Perhaps we can get either
a) the original artists to release their own .sav or .lsdjsng
b) permission to extract individual .lsdjsng's from the .sav and release them seperately or one small collective save

hey so if you ever have a scratched cd you bought, dont ever ask for it to be sent to you via a thread like this, else its immoral.

distributing it to those whove not paid is different but in the case of Fumu, with his horribly erase-battery-prone EMS cart, whats tha problem?

Well I mean, IDC if the homie Fumu wants to back up a dying piece of history for himself. I'm talking about if someone else who might have this cart, backs it up, and posts the link in public. I don't think there's any malicious intent, but it might not be a good idea before clarifying with people first since they still own it

cant see any hate for the guy actually selling the cart on Ebay here, surely that's worse?!

Hm, I don't think that's worse though. I mean they sold it for like $100 - IIRC you got the cart for a donation of like $150, so they didn't even make a profit on it here. They probably just wanted to sell it to someone else who'd be genuinely interested in the data. Now if the .sav started floating around and got shared though, it now brings up concerns of property of each individual artist (like Bit Shifter said), the property of Blip Festival materials, and above all it now turns that special cart into a blank flash cartridge. I think that's kind of depressing IMO sad
