Jez Williams is an ignorant tool. Most studies show those who pirate spend MORE money on music. This guy is a fucking idiot. Probably gets his info from Lily Allen. I hate that this lie keeps getting perpetrated. Record companies are being babies and cutting off their noses to spite their faces. And Jez clearly hasn’t read what the UK anti-piracy laws do.
“Some people say their liberties are being taken away,” he said. “But I wouldn’t go into a baker’s and just take a piece of bread. We need to get paid, really.”
Yes, Jez, but if you did steal the bread they wouldn’t charge your sister or father or mother or brother just for living in the same house as you. You are a moron and you need to do your research. Did you know, Jez, that there are bands not being paid by their own record companies because the companies are so greedy? No, you didn’t, because you are a fucking moron.
