Ripped-Off… Websites without shame

I am starting a list of sites that make my music available for “free download”.
The music is free to the providers because they don’t pay for it! This is called Piracy in the real world or Copyright Infringement if you want to be genteel about it.
Some of these sites require you to download an app.(lication) for you to hear the music. Some require you to join a club, and some like the first on this list require nothing at all. What is called “file sharing”.

These people have ripped the physical disc because they are making available a track that is not available on the downloadable album.
Nowhere on their site does it say where they are based or under which copyright agreement they operate.
Next up we have Free Fox who enable ‘file sharing’.
They incorporate a copyright infringement warning to their users in their ‘device’ set up. I will be sending them a take down notice asap.

What I especially like about these people is that they have the gall to categorize my music as Christian/gospel.
I notice now that they have done this to a song of mine from my earlier Trio album – Journey to Gythia – ‘Song for Peace’.
Don’t these Christians have any sense of shame?

Here is another one – selling my music ‘cheap’ on the internet
These people are not only stealing my copyright materials but also those of Raye/DePaul, who wrote Here’s That Rainy Day. Sure sign that this material is ripped-off because this song does not appear on the digitally downloadable disc, only on the physical copy.

WHEN IS THIS INTERNET OFF-RIPPING GOING TO STOP?
I am a private individual who one time used to write music. I will not do it anymore because my copyrighted material is consistently being ripped-off on the internet.
ENOUGH ALREADY!
WHEN IS SOMEONE GOING TO PUT A STOP TO THIS?

in fact the user is paying for a service that allows him to use file sharing.
Independent artists are the greatest victims of these arrangements because they do not have the legal muscle of the large corporations that fought Napster and made them go legal.
