“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. ”

Ezel Feliz, :
"We are a small boutique label that strive to make quality music and thrive in today's competitive music market. The ability to sell our goods and successfully capitalize on the digital market is often at risk at the hand of the rampant piracy sites who unashamedly post our entire catalog on their websites for users to adquire freely leaving us with very little revenue which impact our business. We like to think that each legal purchase of our music is honoring our artist and their livelyhood. Music is a labor of love, sweat and tears and needs to be recognized. "
Michal, Label Manger:
"It's a terrible thing. DJs and fans should pay for the music they play and listen to. It's impossible to fight it, but lets try at least."
"It wasn’t for legitimate online music stores, producers wouldn’t be able to survive and continue to create. And DJ like me wouldn’t have music to play."
