Somebody out there is hacking into music sites, downloading complete releases and then systematically uploading the music to several free file hosts, the bad ones!
And then, finally, re-publishing the music on every conceivable warez music site and special interest forums linking to free file hosts holding (my) albums, tracks and what not as free downloads. Is this an artists nightmare or is it an opportunity for (underground) fame?
Do you recognize the pattern? I’m sure you came across this problem if you like me, are producing and recording music that you publish on the web. It can be quite damaging for self esteem and moral. Especially after spending months and sometimes years to achieve the supposedly exciting grand moment for publishing only to realize that within days one is totally ripped of the possibility to remain the exclusive publisher of ones own music.
And for the record Part of the publicity used by Qubenzis Psy Audio is to give away loads of music for free. If you visited qubenzis.com before you know I believe in free music, so don’t get me wrong. But I wrote a quite frank article (not for the soft minded and yet it is for everybody) Read the rest of this article on QPA’s WordPress blog, I really recommend it.
