“99.9% of artists and labels are in this for the love of the music. They are not superstars; they are not millionaires; they are you and me - often not making a dime; and, in fact, often spending more then they make for their craft and passion. At Pluralistic Records, we donate a good deal of our proceeds to non-profits supporting youth and the arts. These pirate sites are anti-music, anti-art, and anti-artist. ”

Clemens Gutzeit, Deejay, Label Owner, Producer, Studio Owner :
"dear team, my whole music catalog has been pirated in the last 12 years. you can use my catalog. look at my website. i had already tried with a lawyer to force certain one click hosters to delete my releases using a filter. for 10 years I have come to Rapidshare to prevent this. unfortunately they had a better lawyer who claimed that this would not be technically possible. I can help you find certain sites. I have already collected where our work can be found. At the moment i have a lot of new music ready. I don't dare to publish it yet. after 3 days everything is illegal online. best wishes clemens"

"The only freedom artist have is being able to create music and content that has an impact on their lives and lives of many other people in the world. Do not take away that freedom."
