Universal Music's anti-piracy ads reached new heights of crazypants gore - Boing Boing

Apparently that message hasn't gotten through, so the industry keeps ramping up the particular ridiculousness of each campaign.

This from a record company in which deducts "breakage" (the percentage associated with vinyl LPs broken between the factory and the record store) through its musicians' digital songs royalties; exactly where that they routinely ran off-books third-shift pressings to be able to produce CDs that were fraudulently offered without virtually any royalties in virtually any way getting paid to the band; along with whom trouser the particular vast majority associated with streaming audio royalties.

Saatchi & Saatchi Sao Paulo designed these grotesque ads with regard to Universal Music, by which bloody gobbets involving rock-n-roller are generally captioned using "Stop Destroying your Band Anyone Like: Decline to be able to Audio Piracy."

. no make any difference how much "educating" the market does, it's not likely to alter the undeniable fact that people just like to have their content material much more conveniently.

As Mike Masnick points out this helps create the IT Crowd's "You wouldn't steal a car" advert look tame by comparison.

We've discussed this just before many times: piracy is not an education problem
