Trent Reznor: Liebe Chinesen, ladet lieber runter statt bei Piraten zu kaufen

Das nenne ich doch mal Pragmatismus: Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) empfiehlt Chinesen, wenn sie seine CDs schon nicht legal kaufen können, dann sollen sie diese doch bitte irgendwo im Internet runterladen, statt irgendwelche selbstgebrannte CDs von Piraten zu kaufen.

As for the special situation in China, it does not seem to be easy to obtain Western music via legal channels, so I have the following suggestion for our fans: If you can find and buy our legal CDs, I express my thanks for your support. If you cannot find it, I think that downloading from the Internet is a more acceptable option than buying pirated CDs. Our music is easy to find on the Internet, and you might not need to spend much effort to find most of our songs. If you like our songs after you've heard them, please feel free to share it with your friends. As I have put all my effort and heart into my music, I sincerely hope that more and more people can share the enjoyment with us.

Ich empfehle das ja nicht nur Chinesen.
