POWER TO THE PEOPLE: RAPPERS PRO (CHUCK D) AND CON (LL COOL J) ON P2P
Chuck D of Public Enemy: "Technology giveth and it taketh away. ... I think this expands artistry and it's about adjustment ... I never felt that my copyrights were protected anyway. I've been spending most of my career ducking lawyers, accountants and business executives who have basically been more blasphemous than file sharers and P2P. I trust the consumer more than I trust the people who have been at the helm of these companies. The record industry is hypocritical and the domination has to be shared. P2P to me means 'power to the people.'"
