Bragging about filesharing


Billy Bragg has published an article in the Guardian giving insight into last week’s meeting of the Featured Artists Coalition and arguing that “this is a war that no one can win.” “Despite our differences of opinion”, writes Bragg, “we were able to agree on bandwidth restriction as final sanction for egregious offenders. We held back from suspension of internet accounts because we felt it was disproportionate and punitive, but most of all, we held back because we didn’t believe it was in the best interests of our profession.” “The recording industry will continue to ask legislators for ever tighter sanctions, leading ultimately to an internet controlled by and for big business”, writes Bragg, “the loss to the creative community would be catastrophic”.
