A great response in the file sharing debate

Last updated on August 23, 2017

This is a bit old, but I hadn’t had a chance to post it and thought it would beg good for those who didn’t see this the first time around.

For those who don’t know, there’s a debate raging in the UK (and other European countries with similar legislation) over proposed legislation that would be a “3 strikes” policy on those that are accused of file sharing.

Last month Lilly Allen came out in favor of this legislation, but in the process of blogging about this, she plagiarized TechDirt in the process (whoops!). In response, Dan Bull released this video/open letter that pretty much summarizes my stance as a musician on going after file-sharers.  This is definitely worth a look.
