“I leave in Italy, and the piracy in this country is outrages, everyone downloads free from free converters, there is no culture in going to digital store and legally buy music. It is something I always fight even with people I know. ”
Tony Zuccaro, Artist, DJ, Composer
Mark Di Meo, Label Manager:
"Hi guys, I noticed all our catalogue is actually on a few illegal websites, I really wish they close them."
Mikki Afflick, Label:
"I ask myself why should I even release music."
Mari-Anne Stott, Label Manager:
"We're a long established independent label but we've been experiencing some shocking piracy that is really hurting us and our artists. Last year I noticed our sales massively dipped and a quick Google search found the tracks blatantly available on pirate sites in the first few days of their release. Its horrible to have to explain to an artist their release made no money, especially when so many people are playing it! So glad to see an official campaign . Thank you in advance for anything you manage to do! "
