Blow for music industry as Lily Allen says Peter Mandelson's plans too draconian

,----[ Quote ]
| The music industryâs battle to have persistent internet 
| pirates disconnected was dealt a huge blow last night 
| after leading musicians including Lily Allen settled 
| their differences and agreed that plans to suspend 
| internet access were too draconian.


Squeeze file-sharers, stars say

,----[ Quote ]
| Instead, they released a statement saying persistent 
| offenders should have their bandwidths "squeezed".
| Artists including Allen, George Michael, Annie Lennox, 
| Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien and Pink Floyd drummer 
| Nick Mason signed the statement. 



Lily Allen Distributing Tons Of Copyrighted Music; Blows Way Past Three Strikes

,----[Quote  ]
| It appears that she actually qualifies. Quite directly. 
| She's offering music from, among others, Jay-Z, Jefferson 
| Airplane, The Specials and The Kinks. Admittedly, it's 
| just a quick look around, but it appears many of the 
| artists whose works she's distributing for free have no 
| connection with EMI. Even if they did, remember EMI was 
| recently claiming that it's never authorized MP3s for 
| distribution for publicity purposes. Uh oh. 


Some Questions For Lily Allen


A Teaching Moment For Lily Allen [Update: And Poof Goes Her Blog]

,----[ Quote ]
| Update: Wow. In the half an hour or so that I took to 
| write this post, Lily erased the blog post where she 
| responded (I've got a screenshot if anyone wants to see 
| it), and just added a note to Twitter, saying that she's 
| shut down the entire blog due to too much abuse. Lily, 
| it's not abuse if we're just asking you to rethink your 
| positions that appear to not be particularly well thought 
| out.


Lily Allen, Don't Apologize To Me, Apologize To Everyone Else

,----[ Quote ]
| If anyone deserves an apology, it's all the people you've been
| blasting with this complaint that it's "piracy" that's somehow
| harming artists, when the actual evidence shows no such thing.
| Plenty of artists have learned to embrace file sharing and
| used it to their advantage, suggesting it's not piracy that's
| the problem -- it's artists unwillingness to adapt and put in
| place smarter business models.


Lily Allen: Copying Isn't Alright... Unless It's Done By Lily Allen

,----[ Quote ]
| But what's quite odd is that Ms. Allen, while complaining
| about such unfair copying, seemed to have absolutely no
| problem with copying my entire Techdirt post -- without
| credit or a link.
