When a lot of people don't think that fairness coupled with finance is
possible, it is because of large inhuman entities like Sony who price the
collective above the individual.

It doesn't matter to me who asks me not to follow my ideas - the artist or
the corporation, my response would be the same if asked by either.

Incidentally, don't think that just big labels rip people off. You don't
have to be George Michael to feel like you gave people your BLOOD in
exchange of a lend of 2000 and some PR (if you're lucky).
