  • Bootleg: Unauthorized reproductions or compilations without any original content, sold by a business entity.
Working from these definitions for a moment, does this mean that if a famous composer self-publishes a game soundtrack, that it would be listed as Doujin/Indie? This would definitely create some confusion.
