They are not misrepresenting anything either but they are, I believe, short-changing the artists.
With the possible exception of Edmonton and a few other fests influenced by them it has been my experience that the practice of “short changing the artist” is prevalent throughout the street performing festival circuit. Even in Europe I have seen a surprising disregard for artist rights by advertising departments … that seems so strange considering the European community (by and large) seems so respectful of artists … I don’t get it … but I’m glad a few people like Dick Finkle and Shelley Switzer do.
