Probably I'm an idiot, but I've troubles understanding why this website might have troubles for sharing openly album rips, while it is already 'giving away' booklets / obis / stickers / disk covers...
It's actually my biggest concern about VGMdb that we'll have to face in the future. The more popular VGMdb is becoming, the sooner the day comes.
