Electronic Frontier Foundation launches file sharing ads


An ad from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) intended for the more than 60 million U.S. residents sharing music files online appeared in Rolling Stone's August 9 issue, hitting the stands today.

The EFF ad -- part of an ongoing campaign to protect the rights of people sharing music online while compensating artists -- shows several music fans in a police-style lineup accused of sharing files online using peer-to-peer (P2P) technology like Kazaa and Morpheus. The ad copy reads, "Tired of being treated like a criminal for sharing music online?" and "File-Sharing: It's Music to Our Ears."

"EFF created the 'Let the Music Play' campaign to raise awareness about critical changes needed in copyright law and industry practice," explained EFF Executive Director Shari Steele. "We want to make sure artists get paid without making criminals out of the over 60 million music lovers who use file sharing networks in the U.S."

The EFF ad will also appear in Spin, Blender, Vibe, PC Gamer, and Computer Gaming World over the next two months.
