Sandile Magwaza, Label Manager:
"I am mostly affected by these sites in South Africa, because of them we cannot make a good living from music. The website that pirate our music includes https://afrohouseking.com/ https://fakaza.com/ https://fakazavibes.com/ https://fakazamusic.org/ https://www.hitvibes.com/category/mp3-download/ https://hiphopza.com/mp3-download/ https://justnaija.com/music/south-africa/"
Dom Kerley, VP of Artists, Content and Labels:
"Music piracy isn't new, but as the industry has grown, the pirates have got smarter and more organised. These pay-to-access sites are specifically designed to confuse consumers and unfortunately, they are incredibly successful. When Music Mission approached us to help them tackle the sites directly, get them taken down permanently and remove their means of taking payments, we were fully on board. The process itself is incredibly easy - it just takes the industry to unite and work together, and we're proud to be part of the movement "
Luciano Bove, Records Label:
"Stop Piracy. "
Mark Ellison, label manager:
"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"
