Some Bands Can Be Such Hypocrites

Filed under: Copyright Issue, Band News — ian @ 11:48 pm

Wednesday Night Coincidence[NEW EDITED VERSION]
I have just received a most gracious and heartfelt email from Wednesday Night Coincidence which fully explains their faux pas, I am humbled. Of course like most bands WNC are “just a group of friends having a good time” and that is reflected in their brilliantly performed music.

Wednesday Night Coincidence have just launched their new and updated website “08:03:2009″ choosing our Website Template as a framework - thanx :)

My gripe is with bands (unlike Wednesday Night Coincidence) who hypocritically fight to protect their own work while stealing other peoples’.

I find it very funny, over the years I’ve worked with many artists from all disciplines (photographers, painters, sculptors, musicians, writers… often incredibly famous and All highly principled) and the one thing they worry about is copyright - people copying their work. …The music and film industries are almost obsessed with the problem because it costs them so much money, yet, if one looks around some of them are at it too, copying other people’s work and claiming it for themselves.

  1. Yes, copyright is one of the most problematic factor for the artist.

  2. Well artists need to respect the copright of others too Arisha - it’s called “getting your own house in order”. Even humble, helpful twats like myself get pissed off. All I’m asking for is a link!

    I’m liking your website: Arisha - I wonder if you’ve infringed a copyright with that name ;) ? Mind you, if can exist I’m sure you can, I wouldn’t include any spaces though :D
