"Copyright is a tax on learning. It is a tax on culture. It is a tax on speech. And this tax is more than an inconvenience. It is a barrier to those who cannot, or will not, pay it."
“No matter how much you sit there twiddling, going, ‚We’re all doomed’, at the end of the day people will always want to hear you play ‚Creep’. Get over it.” – Noel Gallagher on Thom York
"Piracy is robbery with violence, often segueing into murder, rape and kidnapping. It is one of the most frightening crimes in the world. Using the same term to describe a twelve-year-old swapping music with friends, even thousands of songs, is evidence of a loss of perspective so astounding that it invites and deserves the derision it receives."
"Good artists copy. Great artists steal."
"If people are willing to have faceless CDs like that in their collection, good for them. It would be absolutely ludicrous for a rock-star to demand that people pay money for albums because the kids haven’t got that much money to pay for an album, so if they can find it for free, go ahead! But don’t do it on Oasis records though – because that’s against the law."
"How to stop piracy:
1. Create great things.
2. Fair prices.
3. Same release date everywhere"
