@njmacphee: Musician @MaximCormier wonders how songs ended up for sale online without his OK–Artist Rights Watch

January 15, 2017

One of the only stories on piracy where the artist called the cops.  More of that, please!

A guitarist from Cape Breton was shocked this week to discover his music was being sold online without his knowledge or consent. Maxim Cormier of Chéticamp said a local radio station was offering track-by-track digital downloads of his songs for a fee. “I had never given permission to them to do that,” said Cormier. “And I had certainly never received any payments for any of the sales.” When Cormier found out, he called the police.
