The band Ghost Beach is running a controversial billboard campaign in New York’s Times Square. With slogans such as “Piracy is Progress” and “Piracy is Robbery” they are encouraging other artists to speak their mind about copyright infringement. The band itself told TorrentFreak that it is ultimately against piracy, but that the problem can only be tackled when consumers have affordable and convenient alternatives. For now, they want the public to choose whether they want to pay for their latest album, or download it for free.
