Where do you all go to watch the latest videos and download/listen to music? Chances are you visit (just as we do) any or all of the sites listed above. We don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like their file sharing days are numbered. Unfortunately, numbers ,with lots of zeros that follow, are the main reason why it may be a wrap. Universal Music Group has included them in a piracy blacklist that excludes them from all advertising campaigns and media buy revenue from Group M, the world’s largest advertising agency.
Currently, there is a bill on the Senate floor (the PROTECT IP Act) that aims to extend copyright liability to these music storage and distribution sites and blogs. NOW, it is our job Fly Society to be there with the assist in any way we can.
With that being said, let’s us put you onto game by introducing you all to Iamnotapirate.com, the première Direct-to-Music Fan Music Blog that has launched today! Their mission is to protect the file sharing rights of artists, websites, and fans.
They have composed a Filesharing Bill of Rights that breaks down the entitlements of every music creator and fan alike. There is online signage available as well as sponsorship opportunities. For more information, log onto the site or contact:
