“Would be a shame that we have to find another way of income as an artist instead of being able to create music for people.”
Maxime Neslany, DJ Producer
Elmer R Mooring Jr, Label:
"As a new and very small independent label, piracy is still one of the biggest obstacles and problems we face...."
Ruben, Label Manager Owner and artist:
"One of the most unpleasant example of how these pages work is that: Even though it hasn't gone on sale (we are in Pre-sale)my latest work, is available on those platforms to download... where's the security flaw? i dont know ... but the losses are already insured even before that goes on sale. First we lost a record store with the P2P like Napster, Emule, and since 2007 we see how these pages earn fortunes while the electronic music industry enters on losses and has to almost consider selling music as a promotion of its artists and not a business..."
Emiliano Sanchez, Label Manager:
"All the people who work with us are being affected by this problem, above all the artists, their value is declining every day and it is important for any musician that their work is revalued and their legacy can continue."
