“we manage 2 labels, Reload Records and Reload Black Label, we work with Labelworx and always our releases are on these kind of pirate websites, even before the release date...”

Greg Marshall, Electronic Music Trade Association :
"The issue of DJs sourcing tracks from pirate subscription download sites is a major problem which takes away vital income from artists and the electronic music supply chain of retailers, distributors, labels, publishers and artist managers. This initiative presents a new collective opportunity to disrupt piracy and prevent future loss of income. "
Simon Fraser, Label Manager:
"There is value in some forms of piracy. The Grateful Dead wouldn't have been who they were without bootlegs. But when a piracy ring establishes itself behind a veneer of legitimate distribution, that's blatant fraud. And that must be eliminated."
