Gillard's Chorus And Verse

Chorus and Verse interviews Guided By Voices axeman Doug Gillard, who makes his view on filesharing quite clear:

I don't think it is right to make examples of kids who are downloading, and the myth the RIAA perpetuates about it hurting artists smacks of bullshit, as any record label contract, especially the major labels, is stacked so heavily against the recording artist it's unreal. Been going on for decades, and hasn't changed much, except the independent labels who have set up a more fair way of contracting artists. Downloading in a case like ours only helps bring people to the live shows who may not have been familiar with the band otherwise.
