Kid Rock: Copyfighter

Link: BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Kid Rock boycotts iTunes over pay.

"The performer – whose real name is Robert Ritchie – said his record company Atlantic had asked him to "stand up for illegal downloading" a few years ago because it told him "people are stealing from us and stealing from you".

"And I go: ‘Wait a second, you’ve been stealing from the artists for years. Now you want me to stand up for you?’ I was telling kids – download it illegally, I don’t care. I want you to hear my music so I can play live."
