Busted by CDDB

Here's a fascinating story from Gramaphone magazine about how CDDB exposed someone trying to pass off the work of others as their own.

It's sad that people feel the need to try to misappropriate creative work and pass it off as their own. One wonders what kind of bizarre psychology drives people to do that kind of thing. Greed? Hardly, under the best of circumstances there's little money in classical music. Ego? Maybe, but it's not actually your own work. I suppose it's really just a delusion of grandeur.

It's a good thing when these frauds are exposed.
