Music consumers are not the problem. Illegal downloads are not the issue.
The real problem is the unethical treatment of artists by big business and now internet startups…
Every one of them wants to sell you our work at prices that you often find too expensive at the same time paying the creators next to nothing for it.
People like Daniel Ek are killing the music industry, not illegal downloaders. Spread the word about this greedy bastard and enter our competition to win a car.
PlayFairNow.org allows you to easily find out who is treating artists fairly so your purchase can be an ethical one as well as great value for money.
We are just starting to compile a list of online retailers that reflect the PlayFairNow.org ethos of fairness to artists and value to consumers.
7digital.com pays artists 70 to 80% of download price. This is fair.

Don’t let Mandelson disconnect your internet
Copyright infringement through filesharing is illegal and the Government is right to tackle the issue.
But the proposals to deter illegal filesharing announced by Lord Mandelson in September are wrong in principle and won’t work in practice.
Don’t Disconnect Us is a campaign group initiated by TalkTalk which is opposed to the measures proposed by Lord Mandelson.
Here you can find out why we’re so worried, hear what others who share our view say, register your support for our campaign (or tell us why we’re wrong) and contribute to the debate.
