Sam Young, Artist & Label Owner:
"Piracy affect artists and labels in a big way for the last 20 years. It affects our income and lively hood. A digital download is cheaper than a cup of coffee or your fave fast food meal, there's no excuse for it."
Nate Laurence, Label Owner:
"99.9% of artists and labels are in this for the love of the music. They are not superstars; they are not millionaires; they are you and me - often not making a dime; and, in fact, often spending more then they make for their craft and passion. At Pluralistic Records, we donate a good deal of our proceeds to non-profits supporting youth and the arts. These pirate sites are anti-music, anti-art, and anti-artist. "
