“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. ”

Kelvin Lucas, Label Owner and Music producer:
"We use AudioLock to protect our releases, but there are many private Russian pages that are impossible to control! It is very tedious to have to beg them every month to erase your music."
Andrea Zechmeister, My 1 Label :
"I'm really glad that I had the social media in the time when Covid 19 came to us. Unfortunately, there were also sad moments that I survived with diplomacy! Yes we have a Pandemy and I will protect myself and you that the contact with friends should never stop! I want to thank everyone in the Facebook community feeling! Have a nice 1 May day everyone '#staysafe, stayhome #careyourlive # friendsforever #socialmedia #producterlive #streaminglive "
Jamie Redknapp, Label Owner:
"All the time and effort an artist and a small independent label put in, to find all its work shared for free or found on subscription pirate monthly sites its unthinkable."
Liam Connolly, Owner/A&R:
"Piracy is a detriment to the industry which could ultimately cause the end of the artists and music that we all love. "
