“In the era of streaming and micro-payments, it's harder and harder for artists to make any kind of meaningful income from their music. It's difficult for casual consumers to know the difference between sites and organisations that support artists and those that act as parasites on this fragile industry. This conversation is important to us at BBE.”
Will Marshall, Head of DigitalBBE Music
Antony Craven, Label Manager:
"Music piracy, especially the pay for access download sites that are directly profiting from the artist's work. Anything we can do to help re-direct revenue streams back into the music industry is a cause we will fully support"
Vlad Vizitiu, Label Manager:
"Music is AIR"
Tom Parkinson, CEO:
"We are very happy to support this initiative from our friends at AudioLock, who we have worked with for many years in the fight to stop illegal piracy of music copyrights. It's important especially in times of a crisis like COVID19 that artist and writers get paid, as they are usually at the end of the chain and ultimately most likely to miss out. We want to help in any way possible to keep the legitimate revenue streams flowing, denying the pirates any chance of capturing our income, so we can pay our artists."
