“Music piracy is no different to stealing from a shop, depriving artists and labels of much-needed revenue during this particularly challenging time for the industry.”
Marcus Blacker, Label ManagerChapter 24 Records
Jon Sheppard, Record Label:
"As a small independent label, piracy is a huge problem for us and has a direct effect on our business. "
Mario, Music Professional:
"Piracy shouldn't exsist eveybody expects to get paid for his work and efforts in making music or whatever is covered by copyright. Open source has nothing to do with copyright a creator must be remunerated and supported not robbed by other creators/users."
Andrei Ungureanu, Label Manager:
"Piracy is damaging creativity. It steals work from producers and labels crew and more than that it acts as legitimate in front of the music fans. Most of the fans that pay to pirate sites are misleading, and that amount of financial effort is cowardly directed to wrong beneficiaries. Crossworlder has always been supporting young artist development, and this is in our core philosophy. Piracy is stopping young artists from understanding their mission within the global music industry. Its damage is more than financial. It is interfering with the natural development of the musical culture."
