jose vilches, laber manager:
" we sell less because of piracy"
Greg Marshall, Electronic Music Trade Association :
"The issue of DJs sourcing tracks from pirate subscription download sites is a major problem which takes away vital income from artists and the electronic music supply chain of retailers, distributors, labels, publishers and artist managers. This initiative presents a new collective opportunity to disrupt piracy and prevent future loss of income. "
Ivan sacahuma, Label owner:
"Music piracy is getting out of hand. The official release is out and within a few minutes you find on several pirate sites!!.. How can we have a good revenue if the release is available all over the place for free!!"
Craig Roseberry, Label Owner:
"Labels and artists have suffered for years from the seemingly endless proliferation of illegal download sites and pirate platforms. It's been one of our biggest obstacles and sources of frustration."
