Repeating my Twitter reaction:

When will musicians realize that their biggest competitor is ALL THE PAST RECORDINGS EVER and revolt against this madness?

The Internet is not what makes music hard work. Never was! It's competing with Elvis & Mozart.

Demand the right to build on the past, not compete with it.

You know, not all musicians are completely ignorant of that.

Some of us even studied economics.

Some of us even think the current so-called Intellectual Property (which is neither intellectual, nor property) regime is stupid.

This has more to do with politicians and rent-seeking behaviour.

@HerraBRE

I am, in my way. Not violent revolution; I've seen enough of that for one lifetime. But I apply what pressure I can, and speak out where I can.

Everyone needs a hobby.
