“Piracy effects everyone in the music industry negatively but above all artists and creators. It's extremely challenging to make a career making music in today's world and every penny counts for a lot of artists and labels. The fact that people still openly and without remorse continue to steal music when there are so many easy and affordable ways to access it legally and pay the people involved for their work is truly terrible and a threat to many to keep creating.”
Andy Reid, Label Owner / ArtistPhoenix Music
Aliem Jumpp, Label Owner:
"Piracy has taken from our profit and has taken valuable time away from us. Too often we have to send notices to websites to remove music. At times even before it is released."
Liam Wachs, Label Owner:
"Absolutely criminal what's been going on with these sites. So much hard work done by the artists and labels and to find out that over half the digital revenue is being stolen is devastating."
