Sir Mick Jagger is pretty much relaxed on illegal downloading, because the artists have always been struggling – long before the invention of peer-to-peer networks they were the record studios who were ripping them off. He actually admits the performers could never breathe free but a shot period of 25 years since the creation of recorded music.
Today record studios show themselves as the ones who want to defend starving performers, trying to look like the noble companies that are only aimed at protecting interests of artists and just a little money making in the process. However, it is widely known that record studios have a long and appalling history of stealing from musicians and doing all to cheat their financial success, the victims including The Rolling Stones.
Sir Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones’ frontman, admitted that at the beginning of their career the band members hadn’t receive any money from their records, just because record labels wouldn’t pay them. And not only them – they wouldn’t pay anyone.
Lots of other artists agree to his words. Kid Rock noted that at the time, they knew Otis Redding’s and Chuck Berry’s and Fats Domino’s stories of never getting paid. So it could be found rather ironic that the very same labels that used to steal from musicians for many years are now pleading them to ask other parties not to do the same to entertainment industry.
Talking about copyright infringement by illegal downloading, Sir Mick Jagger feels relaxed on the question. He still believes the threat of P2P can cause a considerable change which can only mean artists will not earn on music as much as before, but the musicians have been struggling for money for a long time in the history of recorded music. Sir Jagger says after recorded music was invented back in 1900, he can remember of only a short 25 years of performers doing well. But within the other years they kept struggled.
David J.Hahn, a freelance pianist, has concluded last year that the musicians have been in the world no less than humans have. However, the recorded music is quite a new invention, if we recall the music careers of Mozart and Beethoven
The point all the artists agree on is that it’s definitely not their job to mend a business model which can’t work properly. According to the results of a last year Harvard study, the number of recordings made in this century has at least doubled, which proves that music itself doesn’t suffer, but the current business model instead.

|Thanx for the nice article, i also agree with the top of the article, artist's were struggling, but some of this was due to the executives or studio's putting even more restrictions on the artists themselves, meaning the corporation was to blame.|
Same happened with certain movies, if the studio doesnt make an effort ... why bother.
cheerio ppl. ET is the only place to be!

|Yeah, very interesting. Great read indeed. Thanks for the article post, SaM. ET the place to be.|
|Very true.The main culprit are all the music studios all they want is their personal interest to be fullfiled.|
|i agree totally....whats better than free advertising....they should be paying the downloaders for the advertising of the artists song....because we play it in our houses our cars...etc etc...and then people hear it and then want to buy it....most music and movies that are released now days are mainly crap anyway...it would be nice if one recording company could actually release an album with 14 songs on it that are actually good songs...but no....Â£15-Â£20 will get you a cd with 1 to 2 good songs and thats it...|
the recording studios are never there for the artists they are there for the money usually controlling rights to the songs made......anyways good article...thanks
|As Sir Mick has sung - YOU CAN"T GET NO SATISFACTION..|
Is very true for the MPAA and RIAA; they will keep shotgunning at the users with all kinds of BS laws and suits until they finally destroy the industry as we know it today; when that happens a new industry will arise with "artists" having their own studios at Home in a large sound proof room; high end personal computers and recording equipment and send it directly for sale of even FREE at time to you and I.
Sound like a dream? Nope it is real and TODAY..
Just think? for the first time the "artists" will be getting really paid for their "art work" instead of those money mongering buttwads at the MPAA and RIAA.
YES EVEN THE MPAA; video technology has reached a point you can even do your own movies.
Independant film producers had a very hard time because ALL THE MOVIE RENTAL EQUIPMENT IS CONTROLLED BY THE MOVIE STUDIOS.
You are on their blacklist you could not even rent a light to make a movie..
As some people ahve mentioned this IS NOT REALLY ABOUT MONEY; BUT CONTROL OVER YOU AND I..
