Attention: Artists

If you sign with an RIAA label I will pirate your music mercilessly.

I'm not going to give money that primarily goes to middle-managers who spend all day working out new ways to sue me.

"When an individual makes a copy of a song for himself, I suppose we can say he stole a song."


Like many bands, the Dresden Dolls get a royalty that works out to about $1 per CD. But before a band gets to see any of that, it has to sell enough CDs to cover all of the label's production expenses, which can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Most bands never sell enough CDs to dig out of that hole. So even as bands get bigger, they have to tour constantly to earn all they can from ticket sales.
