So it's not the usual SRC/HT joint release?
No I would guess Universal licensed these out. Most hot topic exclusives are universal.

It doesn't matter how "little" profit he is making (which is probably a hell of a lot more than you think) he is still profiting off the work of others without their knowledge, consent, or cutting them a slice of that profit. It doesn't matter if it would have never seen the light of day, it's still morally and legally wrong to press someone else's music without the consent of the copyright holder.
The copyright holder is the label. It sucks but its life

Look at what he posted, the label had nothing to do with this either.
Drive-thru maybe but Universal I am guessing did.

I doubt what happened is illegal, but it still sucks for a band to find out about something like this through random channels, as well as have no input on the product.
Agree, but that is the music industry these days.

Both of the records being pressed were released on Drive Thru Records, Columbia put out Forget what you know, so I'm not really sure were Universal comes in to this at all.
Living well came out on drive-thru MCA. Remember the horrible deal we all heard about with drive-thru and MCA

My assumption is that Universal Music Group owns the rights to these records.
Or at least they think they do. This is not hot topic's fault it is Universal's. It's their job to tell the band. Hot topic just asks if its possible. They do not press records Universal does.
