Music Band Defends Its Fans in File-Sharing Lawsuit

All Shall Perish, an American deathcore band under the label Nuclear Blast, learned that its fans were sued for downloading the band’s tracks though BitTorrent.The news took the artists by surprise, and they have decided to talk to the label and drop the case.

At least 80 metalheads were facing a fine of up to $150,000 for downloading All Shall Perish’s music albums. However, the band announced that it wasn’t suing its fans and had no knowledge of the lawsuits. Now the artists are looking into it and exploring their options.

As for the record label, it announced that it also respects artists like All Shall Perish who don’t want to pursue file-sharers. Nuclear Blast confirmed that All Shall Perish wasn’t consulted about this lawsuit and didn’t want to participate in it. The band immediately asked the label to cease all legal action against its audience. As a result, Nuclear Blast and World Digital Rights stopped pursuing the file-sharers.

The official statement of the record label claimed that Nuclear Blast and SKP Enforcement UG, both experienced in tracking unauthorized downloads and music file-sharing, took a decision to cooperate with World Digital Rights in order to fight against illegal file-sharing in the United States of America. In the US, the ISPs under the law have to hand out the IP addresses of the PCs from which the downloads were generated. Upon collecting this data, the ISPs act in the interest of the musicians, which is important to the future of both the artists and the label.

Nuclear Blast underlines that the ability to recoup the investments both parties have made is essential in order to create new works and to survive in music business. That’s why people should be aware that the P2P file-sharing is against the law and harms their favorite bands. However, the label also respects artists like All Shall Perish who refuse to pursue their fans. In similar cases, the parties involved pursue people who infringe copyright legislation in order to avoid the financial loss and protect the value of their works.

The record label counts on the loyal fans who have been supporting the label and its bands for over two decades now. Nuclear Blast reminds that every sale helps support music and the people who work hard to bring music to the masses. So, for people who continue to buy music legally there’s something every loyal fan can be proud of.

I would not get music from my favourite band by P2P. I would always buy it. They give me the music I want and I am prepared to pay for it.

New bands and new music to my ears is another thing. Although that could harm the bands it may well turn into something else...because if they become my favourite...they get a new buyer of their CD's. If I don't like what I hear then I'm no poorer for it either.

skreamer avatarYes Raptor5. I wonder what is happening with all the other bands? Did All Shall Perish find this out by accident? Are all bands informed of this type of action?

If by mistake I hope other bands realise this and ask the questions that need to be asked. On the other hand if all bands are informed then it reflects badly on them and All Shall Perish are indeed the 'change'.

No avatarI think i disagree to a point to. "P2P file-sharing is against the law and harms their favorite bands"

how ever no owns the internet except i agree to "no good music if you don't have software to fix it when you get it from torrents because level going up down and sometimes words even finish you know. not all the time it nice to download from torrent specially like wwe shows to continuing week a week shows and pay for view shows I thing because they say statistics and they like know who is watching them in any media people can watch them and they talk about stop cyber pirates and donate millions or thousands of money against to who doing maybe torrent? they say! if this is a publicity to intimidate against web should work."

No avatar@skreamer: what is harming the bands is the greedy record labels not any one(s) not buying the album's. hell defleppard has already told universal to go to hell, so that should tell you something right there.

@skreamer: most bands are doing drugs and party every night if they don't have a gig to do, so they are unaware or just don't care. bands that don't do stuff like that are aware of this and want to eliminate p2p like Metallica.

"P2P file-sharing is against the law and harms their favorite bands" I don't agree at all because greed is in play very heavily now a days. music is meant to make a statement not for just making money.

skreamer avatarYeah OK no one buys their CD and the band is financially unaffected. Not really.

I have only had access to a few small bands so cannot really speculate on what most bands do, but of those I've known they are serious about their performance and manage themselves appropriately. One of the things I was earlier alluding to was this - were Nuclear Blast and World Digital Rights going to take all the settlement and they kept the band in the dark incase they wanted a piece of the money. A spin on the idea would be that the band might not have taken this stand if they were going to get some of the settlement. All rhetoric and speculation.
