    theMouthPiece.com presents for you a . .. . Copyright Issues Fact Sheet

    What is this new Fact Sheet and Copyright FAQ information all about?

    Many threads on theMouthPiece.com discuss the extremely complex subject of Copyright and its many related issues. It is all too apparent that many of us are confused by the governance and laws relating to copyright and the tMP Team felt that we should put together a new tMP Fact Sheet that is freely available to all tMP visitors and members which will hopefully, in plain English, help us understand some of the ins and outs of UK Copyright law. This FAQ and fact sheet has been compiled with the fantastic help and support of several tMP members who are:
    • Philip Sparke
    • Roger Thorne
    • Dave Payn
    • Peter Bale

    ... we are very grateful to each of them for their contribution to this FAQ information. Although the rules of Copyright seem complicated most infringements are done in ignorance rather than with intent. Some of the 'rules' may seem ridiculous from ...

    Welcome back!

    Well... after much trouble and strife, and what seems an age - at long last we're back.

    Sincere apologies to you all for the major outage, but you'll be pleased to know we are running on a new server, with new software and there will be no more security issues, or virus's for anyone - we're back, and we're clean.

    You will most likely notice that we are on a new version of the software that powers tMP, which is the very latest incarnation of vBulletin vB 4.1.5 - so you might have to take some time to familiarise yourselves with the controls and settings are etc... I am still working my way through it all and finding this out by the way!

    If you have any issues, or if you you spot something that is missing from before or is currently not working well, please post this in the How-to forum, and we will do our best to fix it - though given the items we already have listed to fix, this might take a little time.

    So, many thanks to you all for hanging in there, and my sincere apologies for the outage.

    To continue to the forums, click on the 'Forum' tab in the bar near the top of the screen, or follow this link.

    Women in Brass Bands

    Thread Starter: LadyBrassBand

I know they've been discontinued, but it's very frustrating not having a copy as i'm constantly carrying around two cornets! If anyone could give me a lead I'd be eternally...

    How to rehearse a test piece

    Thread Starter: DS2014

    How do you divide up your private rehearsal time with your test pieces? Right now, we've got the Butlins and Area test pieces on the stand. I find all my private practice time is devoted to them. Is anyone still managing to fit in technical practice, or does that go by the wayside at this time of...

    Just hearing word tonight that Lt Col Ray Steadman-Allen has been Promoted to Glory. A sad loss to those of us from an SA background, although he was a good age . A true giant of SA brass banding.

    You assume that the only possible explanation for the lack of women at the top is that women don't want to be there. Even if this is true (and, again,
