Re: voices files we can use for rockbox

I don't understand how this can be a
legal issue because the voice clips are
similar to any recording that people
place on the net. The copy of the
software used to create these voice
clips is licensed, so why can't these
files be available to the public as a
result of one person sharing his
recordings?
