Lily Allen checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@lilymusic) on Monday (September 14), sharing her thoughts on the dangers the British music industry is facing due to illegal file sharing. Lily writes:
I haven’t written on here for a while but I’ve taken the time to write this as I think music piracy is having a dangerous effect on British music, but some really rich and successful artists like Nick Mason from Pink Floyd and Ed O’Brien from Radiohead don’t seem to think so. Last week in an article in the Times these guys from huge bands said file sharing music is fine. It probably is fine for them. They do sell-out arena tours and have the biggest Ferrari collections in the world. For new talent though, file sharing is a disaster as it’s making it harder and harder for new acts to emerge.
