An Open Letter To Lily Allen

A Musical Response To Allen's Anti File-Sharing Campaign      26/09/09

Buying Choices

Lily Allen stirred up a hornets nest, recently, with her campaign against file sharing/music piracy.

Allen argues that file-sharing is fine for older, established bands, but that "For new talent, file sharing is a disaster, as it's making it harder and harder for new acts to emerge."

Allen's stance that you should pay for the music you listen to and support new artists plays well with a lot of musicians, but has opened her up to scorn from others.

The pro file-sharing vs anti-piracy debate seems to bring out the worst in many - so it's refreshing to hear Dan Bull's witty musical response to Allen, above.
