“Piracy has taken from our profit and has taken valuable time away from us. Too often we have to send notices to websites to remove music. At times even before it is released.”
Aliem Jumpp, Label OwnerSpacedOut Studios Entertainment LLC
Chris Maico Schmidt, Label Manager, DJ, Producer & Radio:
"Not a day goes by where I ask myself after getting up in the morning: does it all still make sense? I ask myself the question several times. As DJ, producer, label and radio boss. I don't know how much longer I can answer this question with yes..."
Rainer Weichhold, Label manager:
"Piracy harms the artists and labels heavily"
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."
