Lily Allen demonstrates more of the clear-eyed consistency we've come to love

We all know where Lily Allen stands on filesharing, don't we? Slightly to the right of Lord Mandelson.

So if she believes that throwing households off the internet on suspicion of sharing music for free is appropriate, what terrible fate would she have in store for someone who took her music, copied it, and then sold it? Got to be boiling oil at the very least, right?

Erm, no. Apparently Lily's happy with the idea of unlicensed music sharing, providing someone's making money from it:

"If someone comes up with a burnt copy of my CD and offers it to you for £4 I haven't a problem with that as long as the person buying it places some kind of value on my music," she told Key 103.

So: stealing is bad, stealing is okay providing you sell on the things you've stolen.

My head is hurting a bit.

Youre right thats a confusing quote. Thanks for sharing. I found your blog while searching for something.

Since its relevant here and you might find it fun/useful. I also wanted to give a plug for a site Ive been working on that helps people share songs with their friends. Its free, easy and there's no account signup. Login with Facebook. Check it out if you get a chance. Hope you like it. Thanks!
