“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”

Dom Kerley, VP of Artists, Content and Labels:
"Music piracy isn't new, but as the industry has grown, the pirates have got smarter and more organised. These pay-to-access sites are specifically designed to confuse consumers and unfortunately, they are incredibly successful. When Music Mission approached us to help them tackle the sites directly, get them taken down permanently and remove their means of taking payments, we were fully on board. The process itself is incredibly easy - it just takes the industry to unite and work together, and we're proud to be part of the movement "
Gugulethu, Label Owner and Artist:
"Since there's no respect for art people share music like it's nothing. We at NMG just hope that people will respect/appreciate art and the people who make it. "

"I feel like Piracy really affects revenue streams cause most sites also capture the catalog i put out as a label so that has to stop. "
