A Composer’s-Eye View of the Copyright Wars

bonch writes “As an experiment, composer Jason Robert Brown logged onto a site illegally offering his sheet music for download and contacted hundreds of users politely asking them to stop listing the material. Most complied, some were confused, and a few fought back. Brown chronicles a lengthy exchange he had with a teenage girl named Brenna which provides an interesting insight into the artists’ perspective of the copyright debate. He also responds to several points raised in comments to the article and says, ‘I don’t wish to be the enemy; I’m just a guy trying to make a living.’”
