“Piracy has caused me many problems in the past with people literally stealing my music and releasing it as their own this has to stop! ”
Angel Johnson , Artist
Simon Hills, Digital Manager:
"We support this initiative and its aims to redirect much-needed funds at a critical time to the independent dance sector and its artists. The numbers of visitors to these unlicensed sites are eye-opening but does potentially pose some serious questions (and answers?) to the licensed platforms and their current price points."
Greg Marshall, Electronic Music Trade Association :
"The issue of DJs sourcing tracks from pirate subscription download sites is a major problem which takes away vital income from artists and the electronic music supply chain of retailers, distributors, labels, publishers and artist managers. This initiative presents a new collective opportunity to disrupt piracy and prevent future loss of income. "
