Rainer Weichhold, Label manager:
"Piracy harms the artists and labels heavily"
Stuart, Label Manager:
"The illegal Pay-for-subscription music websites whi are popping up are making an already difficult time for musicians and labels so much harder. Music can be accessed legally for cheaper now than has ever been the case. Support the artists and buy or stream from the proper platforms."
Shawn Hamby, Label Owner/Manager:
"I have came across dozens or more of these subscribe type sites that are illegal with our music on them. These sites need to be taken down!"
Ruben, Label Manager Owner and artist:
"One of the most unpleasant example of how these pages work is that: Even though it hasn't gone on sale (we are in Pre-sale)my latest work, is available on those platforms to download... where's the security flaw? i dont know ... but the losses are already insured even before that goes on sale. First we lost a record store with the P2P like Napster, Emule, and since 2007 we see how these pages earn fortunes while the electronic music industry enters on losses and has to almost consider selling music as a promotion of its artists and not a business..."
