Nate Laurence, Label Owner:
"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. "
Stephane Deschezeaux, Label Manager:
"I feel like someone has stolen the intellectual property of my artists and myself, for independent labels from the underground, it's even more unfair."
