Paul Dickie, Label Manager:
"Let's keep the pirates where they should be. Swashbuckling around the seven seas, swigging rum and laying down sea shanties & off the internet. "
Pedro Muñoz, Label Manager:
"We believe that we lose a significant percentage, now that we are growing that feeling is greater, that limits you in order to have more income to reinvest and do different or bigger things, there is fear of investing in artists for not recovering the investment as it happens to us now with some references."
Josh Gunston, Label & Operations Manager:
"Music piracy has disappeared from the media in the past few years but it certainly hasn’t gone away."
