Pirate Me! Full Album Free For Ogg Camp
In order to celebrate Ogg Camp being in Liverpool this weekend, I’m giving away the entire We Can Make The World Stop album away via download absolutely free.
But in OGG format, not MP3. Ogg is is a completely open, patent-free, professional audio encoding and streaming technology with all the benefits of Open Source.
This is not me doing an empty gesture by chucking an old album at you. This is my latest album that I am currently selling at gigs and in the High Street stores.
So right click the files to download them. And if you like what you hear, please join my newsletter.
The excellent VLC Media Player will happily play OGG files. It is open source (so it’s free of viruses and other such cack), available for Ubuntu and Windows and Mac. And is free. You can get it here.
I’m doing this to try to promote the open source software movement which, with co-operation and openness, outdoes the big private software corporations by providing free, safe, robust software.
Capitalism and the information economy are not happy bedfellows. The Digital Economy Act is an attempt to criminalise people for sharing information like music.
So I say plainly this: PIRATE ME!
Share my music and my message. Pass them on without fear.
Ok, don’t profit from me and don’t exploit me. But share my music for free in the way that the open source software coders share their software for free and you have my total blessing.
And while you’re at it, find out more about the open source software movement and why Ubuntu is better than Windows.
