“As a smaller independent label we suffer greatly with sites that share illegal downloads of our releases which cuts into much needed revenue for both the label and artists and anything that can be done to help stop this is well worth supporting as an industry”
Mark Ellison, label manager
Andrei Ungureanu, Label Manager:
"Piracy is damaging creativity. It steals work from producers and labels crew and more than that it acts as legitimate in front of the music fans. Most of the fans that pay to pirate sites are misleading, and that amount of financial effort is cowardly directed to wrong beneficiaries. Crossworlder has always been supporting young artist development, and this is in our core philosophy. Piracy is stopping young artists from understanding their mission within the global music industry. Its damage is more than financial. It is interfering with the natural development of the musical culture."
James Carson, Record Label Owner/Producer:
"Royalties don't even cover cost of running label. Piracy hurts. "
