BBC MP3 downloads fail to get compliments

And regular reader, and contributor, Alex Noel-Tod writes .....

' In view of your ambivalence about the BBC (and others') download offers, you might be amused by this bit of PR illiteracy in

" ... featured performances of all the nine symphonies written by Beethoven and was complimented by a free download offer of the performances on the BBC Radio 3 website."

There's a world of difference between
'complemented' and 'complimented', but a world blithely unknown to the BBC Phil website. If Ludwig was around to claim royalties, I don't suppose he'd be offering them many compliments ... '
