Joss Stone GETS IT!

Grammy Winner Joss Stone: Piracy Is Brilliant; I Love It
"Yeah, I love it. I think it's brilliant and I'll tell you why. Music should be shared. It's ok, if one person buys it, it's totally cool, burn it up, share it with your friends, I don't care. I don't care how you hear it as long as you hear it. As long as you come to my show, and have a great time listening to the live show it's totally cool. I don't mind. I’m happy that they hear it."
Quite a refreshing mindset but it really shouldn't be. Every musician should embrace potential fans by encouraging the sharing of music. It hurts no one, it helps the artists and it makes the fans not feel like criminals.

Prince, Metallica and Madonna could (and should) learn a lesson from Joss.
