Dying Giraffe Recordings: A non-evil recordlabel

Christian Tan

Todays music industry has created a system that is unfair for both the musicians and the music lover. Combined with an agressive prosecution of downloaders, this causes a very strong polarisation between the industry on one hand and music lovers on the other. Nobody wins. We at dying giraffe recordings are trying to break this impasse and create a system where musicans are rewarded for their work and talent, and where music lovers can enjoy music in a fair way. The key element in this is a breakaway from traditional copyright laws and the use of the creative commons license. This combined with new technologies in the field of internet, audio recording and compression gives us the potency to change te system. Thus building a fighting force of extraordinary magnitude we believe that we can beat the system.
