Classic (RAC Remix) - The Knocks
Fuck the DMCA, fuck the RIAA, and especially fuck the IFPI.
I don’t blame Tumblr for being forced to act on behalf of a bunch of sniveling record industry lawyers, but holy fucking hell, when will those short-sighted assholes ever learn?
Tumblr isn’t where we come to steal music. It’s where we come to share music. It’s the place where we discover artists and hear songs for the fist time. This is the place where we get the word out. It’s the white hot center of cool new shit, and if it becomes poisoned by takedown notices and arbitrary account terminations, then ultimately it’s going to be the artists who suffer.
In the meantime, we’ll all be pissed, Tumblr will be fucked, and the world will still be full of weasels who aren’t willing to pay 99 cents for a fucking song.
