In a discussion on The Session Allen Feldman had this to say about PDF copies of the book:

“A year after the opening of the Irish Traditional Music Archive Eamonn and I donated the recordings, photographs and drawings to the ITMA with the agreement that there would be total public access to the archive. That has always been our motivating ethos which is why as 50% rights holder of the book’s copyright I do not object to the pdf of the Northern Fiddler under discussion.”
