Andy Reid, Label Owner / Artist:
"Piracy effects everyone in the music industry negatively but above all artists and creators. It's extremely challenging to make a career making music in today's world and every penny counts for a lot of artists and labels. The fact that people still openly and without remorse continue to steal music when there are so many easy and affordable ways to access it legally and pay the people involved for their work is truly terrible and a threat to many to keep creating."
Richard Pring, House Music Producer:
"I see my work constantly on Pirate sites... It can be really demoralising especially after all the work I put into my music."
Luca Morrone, DJ/Producer/Label Owner:
"Piracy killin' music! Fight piracy... don't squash the innovation."
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. "
