Record Label Head Was Notorious Pirate

Last month, Sumerian Records made the news on several occasions related to file-sharing. After the label’s boss tricked BitTorrent users into downloading a fake music group promo, he got quite serious with a broadside YouTube had against the piracy. Now the record label is about to launch its own music store, but it was suddenly found out that the company had a skeleton in the closet.

A month ago, the record label made an effort to utilize a very popular way of getting free publicity for one of their music groups and spread information that their songs have leaked to file-sharing networks. Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen sounded very disappointed and angry on the issue, but it soon turned out that it was just a hoax aimed at getting people to download a fake copy of the album. The music indeed was there, but with the band voices chatting over the top. Actually, that was quite funny thing, particularly the samples of Charlie Sheen.

Then, after a couple of days, the label’s attitude towards file-sharing suddenly changed, which was confirmed by a YouTube video where Avildsen was saying that online piracy steals from the US citizens and the industry. In the middle of the talk the cover of the new album was shown, with a note that famous bands get hurt by file-sharing. Avildsen then went on and said that BitTorrent sites are thieves profiting from stolen property of copyright holders.

However, after this video hit the web, Jason Fisher of music site The Gauntlet said in the interview that it was really pathetic for Avildsen to call other people thieves while he was one of them a while ago. Fisher admitted he used to be a member of several warez groups, and Asvilden was there, too!

In high school, the guys ran in the same software piracy and hacking circles, but Avildsen preferred to keep the secret. Not that easily, though. The secret is that Sumerian Records founder used to be not just a member, but a leader of one of the warez scene groups! Some might think that he could use his past attitude to change the lagging industry around after starting the record label, but he just went the same way as many others. Surprisingly enough, the company founder forgot about getting busted for making the alpha source for a number of major ID software releases available.
