Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
Wheras printers, booksellers, and other persons, have of late frequently taken the liberty of printing... books, and other writings, without the consent of the authors... to their very great detriment, and too often to the ruin of them and their families: For preventing therefore such practices for the future, and for the encouragement of learned men to compose and write useful books… STATUTE OF ANNE 1710
The archdeacon gazed at the gigantic edifice for some time in silence, then extending his right hand, with a sigh, towards the printed book which lay open on the table, and his left towards the Notre-Dame, and turning a sad glance from the book to the church, “Alas”, he said, “this will kill that.” RINGAREN AV NOTRE DAME (1831)

These talking machines are going to ruin the artistic development of music in this country. When I was a boy...in front of every house in the summer evenings, you would find young people together singing the songs of the day or old songs. Today you hear these infernal machines going night and day. We will not have a vocal cord left. The vocal cord will be eliminated by a process of evolution, as was the tail of man when he came from the ape. John Philip Sousa (1854 – 1932)

I havent written on here for a while but I've taken the time to write this as I think music piracy is having a dangerous effect on British music…
You don't start out in music with the Ferraris. Instead you get a huge debt from your record company, which you spend years working your arse off to repay…
I don't think what's out there is perfect. It's stupid that kids can't buy anything on the internet without credit, forcing them to steal Mum's credit card or download illegally. It's this kind of thing that the record company bosses, artists, broadband providers and government should be sitting down and discussing.
