Record Label Stops Signing Artists Because of Piracy

The Finnish record label Lion Music has announced that it will not sign any new musicians until politicians have managed to stop piracy. Illegal downloading is killing music, they say, and the label has rallied up its rock stars to spread the word.

Removing internet users so that they don't get a chance to hear the music might have something to do with it.

They should take a note of thorny bleeder records policy on downloads instead of blaming everyone else for there own shortcomings.

When we launched The Bleeder Blog in December 2008, we did it alongside a free album download, titled Get Thorny. It featured sixteen tracks by sixteen up and coming independent artists, and the response was overwhelming. In the past year we’ve had thousands and thousands of music fans from all over the world download the compilation and fall in love with some new artists which they probably would never of had the chance of hearing before.

So now we’re doing it again with Get Thorny 2. Seventeen tracks from seventeen amazing independent artists in glorious 320 kbps MP3 high fidelity. Each track has been carefully filtered through our Thorny Bleeder ears to ensure that we pass along nothing but the finest to our listeners...

Check out for yourselves Free legal music from a company delighted to embrace filesharers  :)

That is indeed the kind of initiative we should support Hell, the topic of this post was about some monopolistic and dramatic publicity activity by a record company who as we all know exist to take 90% of an artists revenue despite not having any matching cost to earn such sums, any initiave to cut out these selfish and talentless middlemen is well supported here.
