This is a link post Letter to Lily Allen I made this!
Lily's had a busy week, hasn't she? I wrote a letter to her, and as a bonus I sang it too.

I used the instrumental from her song "22". Annoyingly, she announced she was quitting music halfway through the recording of this song, so it's already out of date :(

This is a normal post This is outstanding just the thing needed to fight back against the likes of Lily Allen
Metalica and all those other corporate running dogs!

Music is as alive now as it was during the days of punk when we all used to tape music direct from the radio onto our C90s and C60s - but that didn't stop us going out and actually buying the albums and singles - if you like the music you support the group by paying for their music, but you need to know what's out there before you lay out cash.

Top stuff, when the music industry can offer a credible answer as to why we were paying anything up to twenty quid for an album, and suddenly can buy them for three or four quid on the internet (even as a physical product), I might consider giving a fucking toss about what these 'artists' are moaning about

It seems like for years we have been taken for a ride, and the internet has suddenly started bringing everything back down to Earth.

Just imagine if we could get it into the top ten. A pro-piracy song.

If this gets onto ITunes I'm buying it. And I'm going to pester everyone I know to buy it as well.

This is a normal post Infringement isn't theft.
Copyright cannot be stolen. It can be infringed. There's a difference.

Grabbing a hooky copy of something might well be illegal, and morally dodgy as well, but it is not, can never be, and will never be theft.

I wish the pro-copyright lobby hadn't abused the English language to make its point. I'd have more respect for the cunts if they were more honest, instead of blatantly lying about what theft is. You know, something along the lines of, "You know all those musicians who made all that great music you like? Well, they've got to eat, too, so why not pony up a few quid instead of getting copies off your mates?"

I buy most of my music these days from CD Baby, out in Oregon. Everything they sell is independent, and isn't poisoned by those cunts at the major labels. Plus, they're usually a fuckload cheaper than the crap from the major labels, even when factoring in international postage. Independent, and costs less. How could I refuse?

This is a normal post This is what I don't get.
Regardless of how you dress it up, surely the point is that there's a infringment/crime/whatever being committed in the first place? How does deflecting the argument on a technicality make the original action acceptable?

It's like deflecting an accusation of shitting in someone's lunchbox with "actually, it's not my shit, it's my dog's! I just put it in there. You twunt. How dare you accuse *me* of shitting in it!"

Not squaring up for a fight, honest! It just fascinates me!

Well, I think it's more to do with deprivement.

If I come to your house, and steal your telly - you've been deprived of a telly. If I download Lily's latest bop-fantastic from the Interwebz, nobody is actually deprived of anything. Those people who bought it, still have it. No actual thieving has occurred, just sweet digital information flowing through the pipes.
