Welcome to FarePlay
A little over a year ago I started actively researching illegal downloading taking a look at both sides of the argument.
What I found was a serious break from reality. I couldn’t understand why so many people felt entitled to download music, films and even books without the slightest thought about the impact their actions would have on another persons’ life.
While the proponents of online piracy are very outspoken and militant about their imagined justifications for their actions, on the other side there is an almost erie silence from the creative community.
It was this silence that led to the messaging for our first graphic created nine months ago:
If we are to create positive change, we need people working in music, film and the creative arts to step up; to connect and communicate with an entire generation that doesn’t understand how difficult it can be when people are not compensated for their work.
Support us; share how online piracy has impacted your life, your dreams and your ability to support yourself.
If your “choice” is to give your work away, we fully support your right to make that choice.
