Coming out of the shadows

Anonymous bloggers seem to take great joy in 'outing' anyone who dares interfere with their piracy activity and make threats from the comfort of their parents basement.  So let's turn the tables a bit shall we and 'out' some bloggers and at the same time we'll expose the lie that they are only trying to help the arist as these emails will show, they know very well that piracy hurts the artist and are threatening to use it as a weapon:

Should I Laugh about you?
Nah, you closed a blog.
Great job.
Now find my other 9 blog, 3 forum and try to close my user at Soulseek and Emule software, bastard.
I'm sure you can't, so how a looser is now? Cry, bastard, cry!
I share about 30 thousands files in Soulseek and Emule, and what's better? I don't need to upload in megaupload for people to share, and you can't report. Easy no?
I'm sharing all of your stuff as always, and you can't do anything about it, impotent. I should laugh and piss on your carcass.
You can't do nothing to stop me sharing what I want.
Nah, the less famous blog ov mine is down. "Great thing", try hard. Really, try hard. 
Tell me if you have a way to stop me sharing your "shitty" stuff on internet. Please, I usually do not share shits, but some guys want to download it... so... sorry but you gonna loose money, always.
HAHA, who is laughing now?
HAHAHAHA... sorry, for making idiots like you loosing money every day.

The audiences for our actions public libraries, book and record stores, Kevn J Anderson, the band members of Roswell Six, all progessive rock sites that are open, polical activist sites that are open, prog internet radio stations, public radio stations, nut case Bible Belt activist ministers who will be glad to believe you and your project are satanist in origin, Bible Belt radio stations, all private and public torrent sites, blogs, review sites, etc. and any any and all other avenuse we may choose to pursue. As a zealot, you have messed with the wrong people.


So, because we "dare" to protect our interests and stop people from giving away our work, we get this kind of unhinged hysteria and threats.  This is the real pirate community, and they are killing music for the rest of us.

Excellent news on multiple fronts

Just because we haven't been posting, doesn't mean we haven't been active.  We've had amazing results over the past year and just today the judgement has come down against The Pirate Bay.  Each of the 4 principals has received a year in jail and a $4 Million dollar fine.  The other good news out of Sweden is:

On February 25, 2009, IPRED was introduced into Swedish Law. This means that the possessor of the rights (e.g. a record company) has the right to request IP addresses from the Internet supplier if there is a suspicion of somebody downloading files illegally. Since the day the law was put into force the Multimedia Sales Company, CDON, has reported a 20% increase in sales of music and films.

We think that this fact clearly proves that all ideas of filesharing as a mean to increase the sales of CD's is totally incorrect. On the contrary, it shows that the conditions are quite the opposite and that filesharing and other forms of piracy are damaging the possibility for the artist to support himself on his music
