Re: Really!

It is up to us to teach our children to respect the artists by not encouraging film makers to use unlicensed material. How we do that is by teaching them not to post the videos on their sites. It is stealing plain and simpe. As a prior manager for a singer/songwriter, I can promise you that even the smallest of royalty check can mean the difference between paying rent or living in a van. The misconception is that if someone makes a record, they must have a lot of money or must be famous. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I do not agree that the kids should be punished, most of them have no idea that they are even doing anything wrong. But I do believe that the conglomerates have a responsibility to support, not destroy artists by providing a venue for the propogation of unlicensed material. Anyone that tells you that this practice supports an artist is only trying to justify their actions. These videos are not approved or supported by the artist. Someone used one of my artists songs against the backdrop of a video supporting the war. My artist is definately not in support of this war and it took days of researching to find the actual producer of the video to threaten a law suit if he did not pull the song. Fortunately he did it willingly. Plain and simply, using unapproved, unlicensed material of artists does not help them, it hurts them.

Re: Good thought,
Not really Irish3, as I investigated a little more, I found several stories about the industry going after both of them. Scary enough, they may be going after the individuals hosting them as well.
