Iâ..m a big fan of lots of aussie hip-hop, and was genuinely excited about the release of the new/first Hilltop Hoods DVD at the beginning of last week. I finally received my copy on Monday (perhaps Obese â..shipsâ.. by camel nowadays?), and can confirm that - generally speaking - it rocks the comb-over in a mighty way. I say â..generally speakingâ.., because these comments in Chapter 13 (Digital Music) deeply concern me:

Suffa: â..At the end of the day, Independent artists do this for a living, and youâ stealing from them. And youâ not a fan of an artist you steal from. It is stealing from them. You might as well go into their house, and fucking walk out with their couch.â.

Debris: â..Thatâ..s unfortunately a growing trend, but weâ working to combat it with the next album.â.**

Iâ..m not sure what you mean by â..working to combat itâ. Debris, but Iâ..m really hoping that youâ referring to an added-value approach (e.g., including multimedia content on the CD; offering access to online content etc.), rather than one relying on rights-restriction crippleware. - Blog Archive - An Open Letter to the Hilltop Hoods
