Billboard Piracy Battle in NY

A band from Brooklyn called Ghost Beach has come up with a very interesting idea to find out whether the musicians are pro piracy or against it. So, an advertising campaign in the form of billboards on NY’s Times Square reading both “Piracy is Progress” and “Piracy is Robbery” was recently launched by the band. The result was quite unexpected for the music industry.


The billboards in question pointed people to a site ArtistsVsArtists, where everyone could find an open poll keeping track of people tweeting with hashtags #ArtistsForPiracy and #ArtistsAgainstPiracy.

Thus far, the results are overwhelming: about 3.000 twitter users have voted for #ArtistsForPiracy, with only a bit more than 200 voting for #ArtistsAgainstPiracy. As you can understand, the poll’s effect is not what the music group could expect. The band admitted that although they did think that there have been many positive progressions in music distribution and file-sharing portals in result of piracy, they still were ultimately against piracy.

Ghost Beach believed in using new music sharing portals to counter unauthorized downloading by offering the consumers convenient choices in discovering and downloading new music content. Nevertheless, the entire point of this debate was to attract attention to the band and make new fans, and if giving their music away for free officially can do that, then so be it.

As such, the band came to a conclusion that by providing music listeners the choice to purchase, stream or download free from the music creators, the band still wins and its works are shared in a way convenient for consumers with respect to the musicians’ intellectual property.
