    Steal this Disc

    [YT="Steal this Disc"]SDVjyD3qAzw[/YT]

    Found this on P2P-Blog.com, but there isn't an article to go with it, so I linked it straight from YouTube.

    HE does have a point you know.
    "God, from the mount Sinai
    whose grey top shall tremble,
    He descending, will Himself,
    in thunder, lightning, and loud trumpet’s sound,
    ordain them laws".

    Interesting video indeed - downloaded. Reminded me of an HTML file included on a torrent I once leeched from What.cd, which read the following:
    Hello listener...downloader...pirate...pseudo-criminal...

    If you can read this, then you've more than likely downloaded this album from a peer to peer network or torrent.

    You probably expect the rest of this message to tell you that you're hurting musicians and breaking just about every copyright law in the book. Well, it won't tell you that.

    What I would like to tell you is that my record label understands that a large portion of people pirate music because it is easier than buying it. CDs scratch easily, most pay-per-download sites have poor quality and shitty DRM protection, and vinyl is near impossible to find or ship without hassle.
    In many cases I wonder why people buy CDs at all anymore. A few like the tangible artwork, some haven't adapted to MP3s yet, but most do it because they have a profound love for music and want to support the artists making it. Kind of restores your faith in humanity for a moment eh?

    So, now what?
    Like the album? About to go "support the artist" on iTunes?
    Well, don't.
    Alphabasic is currently in a legal battle against Apple because NONE of our material (Sublight Records included) receives a dime of royalty from the vast amount of sales iTunes has generated using our material.

    Want to buy a CD just to show your support?
    If you don't particularly like CDs, don't bother.
    Retailers like Best Buy and Amazon spike the price so high that their cut is often 8 times higher than the artist's. Besides, most CDs are made out of unrecyclable plastic and leave a nasty footprint in your environment.

    If you do particularly like CDs, buy them from the label (in our case, alphabasic.com). After manufacturing costs are recuperated, our artists usually receive over 90% of the actual money coming out of your wallet.
    In addition, all of our physical products are made out of 100% recycled material.
    I think there's also another YouTube video depicting an hypothetical future where the MPAA has won, piracy been crushed, and bootleggers left without a "job"...
    "Come visit sometime, okay? We'll always be here for you. We... we all love you."

    Now you know what, anon??...if most other people came across or knew of what your HTML document just stated, more and more people would become so much more aware of who's really stealling and taking advantage of artist's work.

    WTH, very funny. I just don't believe a guy who won important cinema prizes like him, must end up doing this to get the money he deserves. If he is telling the truth, then he deserves to earn the money he fought for. Poor guy, victim of the big film companies.
    it's hip to be square
