What is Bootlegs Manager?
Bootlegs Manager is an application for Windows that can help Iron Maiden bootleg traders manage their bootleg collections easily and efficiently. It was written by BoBo during June 2003, and went on general release in August 2003. The program is licenced as bootware, meaning that if you like and use the software you should send the author (BoBo) a bootleg of his choice every two years to support continued releases and improvements. If you're a trader from the DC Hub though, registration is free.

You can contact BoBo using the methods available on his Maiden World Forum profile or e-mail him directly using the address edwardthehead1776 AT
